Firm, rich, complex red with plenty to offer now and in years to come.

‘This is a rich stylish wine from the Chanfreau family. It has fine tannins and
signs of wood aging, both of which will meld into the juicy blackcurrant fruits. It
has a predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon that gives the wine its structure and
aging potential. The aftertaste is ripe and still crisp, still young.’
92/100, Roger Voss Wine Enthusiast, February 2017
‘The 2014 Fonreaud has a tightly wound bouquet with well-defined red berry fruit
mixed with cedar and tobacco, although it needs a couple of years to fully unwind.
The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. This
lacquers the mouth with tannin, though it does not feel overbearing and it has plenty
of stuffing on the finish. Give this some bottle age and you'll have a great Cru
Bourgeois/Listrac. Drink 2019-2030.’
90/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate September 2016
‘Crimson not quite out to the rim. Minerally nose. Sweet start and plush
texture. Just a little simple but quite satisfyingly savoury. Good oak handling.
Winning ripe fruit. Acidity perceptible. Drink 2020-2027.’
16.5/20 JancisRobinson.com April 2015
‘Medium deep colour. Lead pencil/ graphite, roasted chestnut espresso
aromas matched with redcurrant and black fruits. Excellent aromatic complexity.
Buoyant and subtle with beautiful cassis, blackcurrant pastille flavours, espresso
roasted chestnut oak and plentiful boney tannins. Finishes firm with an elegant
chalky/inky plume. Superb line and length.’
95/100 Andrew Caillars MW, April 2015
‘Ripe yet fresh, showing a lot of cassis fruit and bright acidity. Medium-bodied
with excellent balance and good length. Drink now or hold.’

One of the effects of COVID-19 is increased business for online businesses and courier companies, and this has led to delays despite everyone's best efforts.

PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME: UP TO FIVE WORKING DAYS for deliveries, though many arrive sooner than this.

We recommend that, for instance, you order as early as possible in the week if you are choosing wine for the weekend.

Any delays are likely to be more significant in more densely populated areas of the country.

Online delivery charges and times

Orders of €150+: free delivery nationwide

All other orders: €15 nationwide flat rate

(please NB delivery of 'offline' orders, those placed by telephone or personal visit, is also charged at €15 for purchases of less than €150, and is free of charge for purchases of €150 or more)

Orders received by midday Monday to Thursday are dispatched that day or the next day.

Orders received by noon on a Friday are dispatched that day or on the following Monday.

Online orders

Our online orders are delivered by courier to ensure fast and reliable delivery of each carefully packaged consignment. Because nobody likes breakages, we use very strong and secure packaging specially designed to protect wine bottles. 

Personalised champagne orders are dispatched to meet your requested deadline, or otherwise as soon as possible. Please allow at least one extra working day for these orders to be prepared.

Eircodes please

The ideal delivery address has someone available to sign for parcels during office hours. This may mean that a work address is a better choice than a home address, as each delivery of our lovely wine needs to be signed for. An Eircode eliminates any doubt about the delivery location, and you can find or check Eircodes here.

Phone numbers please

Our couriers do their best to deliver and often have amazing local knowledge, but in the event of difficulties a reliable telephone number for the recipient makes all the difference and is a required piece of information. A mobile number is usually best.

Track your order

When we dispatch your order, we send on a tracking code so that you can follow your order in transit on the courier's website.

Delivery outside Ireland

If you need delivery to Northern Ireland, please get in touch for availability and rates. Unfortunately, we do not send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost.

Returns

Faulty bottles

Wine is a natural product: its variety is what makes it so interesting!

Sometimes, though, a faulty bottle turns up. It's rare, but it does happen.

We want you to enjoy the wines you buy from us, and we'd like you to enjoy doing business with us too.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a bad bottle, please let us know immediately by calling the office on 021 431 6000 and we'll issue a credit in compensation.

Broken or Damaged Deliveries

Despite our best efforts to wrap and pack securely, damage in transit occurs from time to time.

If there's a breakage, our couriers will normally return the whole fragrant mess to us straight away.

If, however, the damage isn't apparent until you open the box, we'd still prefer to have the whole parcel collected. We'll send you a replacement as soon as possible.
