1855 – wines still outstanding

Château Beychevelle, Saint-Julien

As of this afternoon I have details of over 76 cases (915 bottles) of Bordeaux en primeur that have yet to be received by clients of 1855. There are 37 bottles missing from 2003, 18 from 2004, 581 from 2005, 187 from 2006 and 96 from 2007.

Email correspondence with 1855 reveals a succession of promises that the wine will arrive next month but for some next month never comes – a shocking tale of broken promises.

I'm still concerned to collate as comprehensive a list as I can of those wines that have not been delivered by 1855, so if you are still awaiting wine ordered from this company please email me with the details at Please be assured that your name will not be published.
