Full, richly aromatic dry white from the very south of Burgundy. A noble expression of a noble grape, organically farmed.

Dominique Cornin writes:

These vines were planted by my father in the '60s. They have since been bequeathed by their owner, Mlle Poisard, to the Hospices Civils de Beaune, who have given me a part to farm. The rest of the parcel is cultivated by the Hospices and the wine is sold the day of their famous charity wine auction. “Les Chevrières” vines are located at the top of the hill in the village of Chaintré, clinging to thin clay soil, rooted in hard limestone stratums…It comes as no surprise that these big-hearted “Chevrières” wines are always elegant and distinguished…

This is a deliciously aromatic and intense Chardonnay, representing tremendous value in comparison with the famous names from the Côtes de Beaune further north. Like them, it will repay keeping as its complexities emerge. It already has a rich nose of tropical fruit and flowers, with a buttery softness that will continue to develop and integrate with its youthful acidity. A really fine wine to drink or keep as a consummate match for seafood or subtle poultry dishes.

Orders of €150+: free delivery nationwide

All other orders: €15 nationwide flat rate

Orders are usually dispatched in the first two working days after receipt.

We cannot guarantee delivery on a given day. If the delivery date is important, please let us know, and we'll put one of our 'Not to Be Opened Before' stickers on the box and aim for delivery a day or two early.

Your 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 anticipate your requested deadline (see above), 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, so a work address may be a better choice than a home address. 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, our €15 standard rate applies, with orders of €150 and more travelling free—for the time being.

We do not generally send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost. If you would nonetheless like more information about deliveries outside the island of Ireland, please ask.

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.
