Return and Refund Policy

Return Policy

To protect the provenance of delivered wines, exchange and returns are not allowed.

Corked Wines

While we make every attempt to provide wines of good quality and provenance, we cannot guarantee the personal 'drinkability' for every bottle we sell. It is the industry standard that older wines are purchased "as is" and at the buyer's risk as to the drinkability of the wine. This policy includes "corked" wines (those tainted with TCA and smell of wet cardboard). This wine fault occurred during the cork selection process and is completely out of our control. For the aforementioned reasons, no refund or exchange will be granted.

Gevrey-Chambertin is a village in Burgundy's Côte de Nuits district – produces some of the world's most prestigious and expensive red wines. The village is home to nine grand cru vineyards, comfortably more than any other Burgundy village. Eight of these feature "Chambertin" somewhere in their name, in homage to the most respected among them: Le Chambertin. 

Born in Paris to parents with a military tradition, Jean-Michel Guillon chose to settle in France after his service in the Polynesian Islands. He started his viticultural activity in 1980 with 2.3 ha of land. Today, the estate represents 15 ha spread over more than 20 appellations. After 40 years of intoxicating passions, Jean-Michel will gradually give way to his son Alexis. Eldest son of Jean-Michel, Alexis very quickly showed an interest in the vineyard and wanted to contribute to the family effort by joining his father at the estate. Alternating in BTS between 1999 and 2001 in a domain of Chambolle Musigny then a few years later in Beaujolais and Pic Saint Loup he represents, since his integration in 2001, the referent person within the family domain and a wise adviser. Among his most aggressive innovations may be his use of new oak—100% at all levels, including the Bourgogne Rouge, his entry-level wine. On this front he quotes Henri Jayer, perhaps Burgundy’s most inventive winemaker: “There are no great wines without new barrels”. As such, Guillon & Fils is the biggest buyer of new French oak in Burgundy after Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and the Hospices de Beaune, most arranged through a long-standing partnership with the Ermitage and Cavin cooperages.
