"The vintage 2019 was born under favorable auspices. The dry and warm summer conditions remind us of the Great Vintage 2018. The hydric pressure allowed us to reach remarkable levels of maturity on each one of our varieties. With an exceptional sanitary state, the merlots were collected from September 24th to 28th and the entirety of Cabernets, Sauvignon and Franc as well as the Petit Verdot between September 30th and October 9th.
This vintage offers once more a complex aromatic palette, floral and fruity, with a freshness going along with silky, refined and elegant tannins. A new vintage at competition with 2016 and 2018…" - (Credit: Château Calon Segur)
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
