1855 – 'Is there anything I can do regarding my 2008 orders?'
Château Cheval-Blanc: bottles of 2008 Le Petit Cheval not delivered
This week I received the following message from KG, a UK based customer of 1855. He has been unable to contact the company and is still waiting for his 2008 en primeurs. My advice is to start legal action against 1855.
Is there anything I can do regarding my 2008 orders?
Emails are not being replied to.
The orders are:
4 bottles Château Angélus 2008
2 bottles Le Carillon de l'Angélus 2008
3 bottles Le Petit Cheval 2008
24 bottles Château l'Arrosée 2008
I suggest you take them to court. See recent posts on Jim's Loire see especially:
One lawyer you could consider is Gwendoline Cattier of Deprez Guignot Associés (www.ddg.fr). DDG has a growing track record in handling legal cases against 1855.
'Management' and leading shareholder of 1855
Emeric Sauty de Chalon and Fabien Hyon are the senior 'management' team of 1855 (1855.com, 1855.con). Leading French businessman Jean-Pierre Meyers, who is on the boards of L'Oréal and Nestlé, is a long-term shareholder of 1855.
1855 is a probationary member of La Fevad.
