1855: same problems with Cave Privée
10 Rue des Moulins, Paris – the offices of 1855 are here
The growing 145-page thread on La Passion du Vin clearly shows that the long-term problems customers face with 1855 in getting their wines are now being experienced by people who order through Cave Privée. Cave Privée is now owned by 1855 and is managed by that genius – Fabien Hyon.
Some customers do get their wine but it is frequently months late and meanwhile they get fobbed off with the same sort of lame excuses and unfulfilled promises that clients of 1855 experience. My guess is that some of the delays are due to producers either not wishing to deal with the crooks that run 1855 and Cave Privée or not being paid and therefore not supplying Fabien Hyon and Emeric Sauty de Chalon with wine.
The advice given by a number of La Passion du Vin posters not to deal with Cave Privée is surely wise and eminently sensible.
