arrivage

Especially in the Bordeaux usual practice, wines at an agreed or fixed price in the context of a subscription pre-ordered, long before they were bottled or tasted. Such wines are then often only one, two or even more years later after completion of maturation available. 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 refers to the period in which the wineries and Wine trading houses make deliveries of such wines. There are also so-called "Arrivage Tastings", during which the subscribed wines are tasted by members of an "Arrivage Round". The commonality of such rounds (groups) results from temporally same order of a particular wine, which is delivered by a particular winery or trading house.
