1855 lose another court case this time in Arcachon

Chai@Château Margaux

Lawyer Hélène Poulou has had a further success against the fraudulent internet wine company – 1855. This time at Archachon on Friday 12th October 2012. He represented a local client of 1855, who had ordered three bottles of en primeur Bordeaux at the end of April 2009 – Chx: Margaux, Haut-Brion and Angelus. 1855 contracted to deliver them at the latest by Spring 2011. The client is still waiting for his wine.

The court has ordered 1855 to deliver the three wines. If it fails 1855 will have to pay 50 euros a day. The fraudulent company has also been ordered to pay the client 500 euros in compensation plus 500 euros of costs. 

Little surprise that shares in 1855 slid briefly to 0.02c yesterday on the Paris Bourse. They have since recovered slightly and are now at 0.03c.
