Some would argue that buying en primeur is silly when there are Bordeaux on the market, ready to drink and at the same price.

Plus, the five wines suggested for your 2016 en primeur purchase here are in very limited quantities, and collectable. In the coming years their price will be even higher, and it will be harder to know if you are getting the real thing. Click through for the suggestions!
