M&S Bordeaux ‘En Primeur’
M&S released its first en primeur Bordeaux wines in In 2017, an impressive selection of classed growth clarets offered as single bottles or half cases. It was quite a game changer – making the world of fine wine accessible to many for the first time.
The challenge was how to present the wines to core M&S customers, without overcomplicating or dumbing them down. I developed an online approach that marries engaging tasting notes and simple storage recommendations with historic and technical information without getting too bogged down in the viticultural and winemaking aspects.
M&S WINE CLUB
I started working on M&S’s Wine Club inserts back in 2014, when I first joined the company’s Wines, Beers & Spirits department.
The Wine Club inserts feature snappy overviews of each wine, where I combine tasting notes, style guides and regional details with food matching recommendations, to help people get the most out of their wines.
