Alain Raynaud,  President and founder of the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux

 This month, the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux  ended its American Wine Tasting Tour in Miami. Over 38 of the most respected winemakers from the Right Bank and the Left Bank of Bordeaux unveiled their  2013 “en primeur” vintage (“wine futures”) and offered degustations of the celebrated 2011 and 2010 vintages.

Alain Raynaud, the President and founder of the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux, is a winemaker himself and a consultant for many châteaux in Bordeaux and wineries in Napa Valley. He is with us today to enlighten wine drinkers about the Grand Cercle, the 2013 vintage and to elucidate what for some remains a mystery: the “en primeur” concept.
