TERMS OF SALE
Article 1 – Acceptance
In the absence of special provisions contained herein and expressly agreed by the parties, all orders imply the buyer’s unconditional acceptance of these Terms of Sale, which shall prevail over all other documents the buyer may provide and over any other terms of sale, which are not binding on the seller.
Article 2 – Order
All orders are irrevocable and may not be changed without the express consent of the seller. Orders are final only when the entire sale price has been fully paid to the seller. Offers are made within the limits of available stocks, barring prior sale thereof. Stocks cannot be guaranteed.
Article 3 – Delivery
Wines are delivered in wooden or cardboard cases in increments of 1, 2, 3, 6 or 12 bottles deliverable at once to the same place. The seller may not be held liable for deliveries rendered impossible by an error in the delivery address. While the seller makes every effort to deliver by the indicated date, the latter is provided for informational purposes only. Delays in delivery shall not give rise to damages or compensation of any kind whatsoever and shall not constitute grounds for cancelling the order.
Article 4 – Returns
In accordance with Article L.121-16 of the French Consumer Code, the buyer has seven clear days from receipt of the order to refuse the items delivered. In this case, the merchandise may be returned in its original packaging at the expense of the buyer, and will be reimbursed net of the original shipping cost if it is determined, upon verification, that the items have not been damaged in any way.
Article 5 – Quality
In accordance with international practices, the seller is not obliged to exchange corked bottles. Moreover, while the wine is stored in ideal conditions in its cellars, the seller cannot guarantee the quality of older vintages.
Article 6 – Shipment
The merchandise travels at the risk of the recipient. In case of failure to deliver or damage at receipt, the buyer must send a registered letter to the carrier within seventy-two (72) hours, with a copy addressed to the sender. After this period, no claim will be accepted.
Article 7 – Disputes
Failing amicable resolution, all disputes shall be brought before the commercial court having jurisdiction over the seller’s registered office, i.e. the Commercial Court of Nanterre.
Article 8 – Retention of title
Pursuant to French law no. 80 336 of May 1, 1980 on retention of title, the seller retains title to the merchandise supplied until full payment has been made.
