We followed J. F.´s advice and obtained an order for 1855 to deliver. As you can imagine they did not do this, but they did offer us a refund for the wines, which approximated to the market value.
The cheque was promised in mid September, but we only received it (after some more complaining from our side) in early December. The amazing thing is that the cheque actually cleared! So we have our money back (after FIVE years of waiting). I would have preferred my wines, but what can you do? This irritation is out of our lives.
1855 is a probationary member of La Fevad.
