A website devoted to wine has a story about the “en primeur”, or wine futures system for wines from a famous region in France. Investors buy wines from the barrel before they are bottled, at a lower price. The wines are sampled in the barrel and scored. The score is the basis for the futures price. Investors hope that the wines, when bottled, bring a profit as they hit the market. The feature reviews three separate wines, noting prices for past years.
