The first exports from Bordeaux began in 1302 when Saint-Émilion was shipped to England for the pleasure of King Edward I. Later in the 17th century, the Dutch helped establish a négociant system that expanded the promotion and exportation of Bordeaux wine. The system relieved the château owner from the business of selling and provided them immediate cash in hand. The "Place de Bordeaux"--and all the courtiers, en primeur, and tranches that go along with it--still exists today, making Bordeaux unique in the world wine trade.
