I am a complete newbie at this, so I really appreciate your help.  Let’s say I am in the market for a vintage wine, and a dealer says the item is “pre-arrival”.  Does that mean that usually it is going to come from the Chateau?  I looked at a 1959 Yquem, and I saw pre-arrival listed.  I know, I could just call the dealer, but I wanted to get some info before I look completely stupid.  Do a lot of the vineyards keep their stock for decades after harvest?  It seems almost too good to be true.

I’ve read a fair amount about wine fakes, and this would seem to be the best way to go (order something that has been at the Chateau all this time).

Thanks in advance.
