1855: failure to deliver primeurs spreads to chateauonline

10 Rue des Moulins, Paris – HQ of the 1855 scam

My post this week on Les 5 du Vin is a return to 1855. I continue to receive regular complaints about 1855's failure to deliver Bordeaux en primeurs to their clients. This problem has now spread to chateauonline acquired by 1855 last year. The post includes a kind offer of assistance from a client who is taking chateauonline to court.

'Management' and leading shareholder of 1855 
Emeric Sauty de Chalon and Fabien Hyon are the senior 'management' team of 1855 (, 1855.con). Thierry Maincent was a director and one of the directeur général délégués until he resigned his posts for personal reasons on 30th September 2010. Businessman Jean-Pierre Meyers, who is on the boards of L'Oreal and Nestlé, is a long-term shareholder of 1855.

1855 is a probationary member of La Fevad.
