arrivage

Especially in Bordeaux usual practice, wines at an agreed or fixed price as part of a subscription to be pre-ordered long before they have been bottled or tasted. Such wines are often not available until one, two or even more years after maturing. The French term "Arrivage" means "arrival" (or "entrance") and in the narrower sense means the delivery of this pre-ordered wine to the end customer. In a broader sense, this means the period in which the wineries and Wine trading houses deliver such wines. There are also so-called "Arrivage tastings", in which the subscription wines that are delivered are tasted by members of an "Arrivage round". The commonality of such rounds (groups) results from the same time order of a certain wine, which is delivered by a certain winery or trading house.
