    Acceptance of the General Terms and Conditions
    Unless specifically stipulated and with a written agreement between the parties, all orders are conditioned by the present general conditions and terms, prevailing over any other documents issued by the seller.
    Offers / Prices / Orders
    All our prices are valid according to availability, except for special offers, promotions and gifts.
    Prices are indicated in €, including VAT and Excise duties. Our offers are exclusively available for private customers, in no case for importers or distributors. Given the extremely rare or speculative nature of some of our products, the assumed average consumption of a private individual and our aim to satisfy each and every customer of ours, we reserve the right to apply restrictions on available quantities, or even to cancel an order which appears to be obviously abnormal. All orders are confirmed through the mailing of the invoice but the delivery of the order is subject to the full and entire payment of the stated price (after confirmation from our bank that the funds have been received into our account).
    Means and conditions of payment
    Payment of the goods is entirely due upon order, either by cheque, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Diners or American Express) or bank transfer to the following account at the:
    Société Générale Bank
    IBAN: FR76 30003 00919 00020021477 41
    No payment may be postponed without our prior agreement.
    Bottled wines available now
    An invoice indicating the prices in € and including VAT and Excise duties will be issued by Millésima and emailed to the customer’s email address. Delivery to one address in Ireland is free for orders of more than €300. For orders looking at less than €300, a charge of €35 will be made for transport and insurance. For each additional address in mainland Ireland, prices are available on application.
    En-Primeur wines
    As of January 1st 2023, VAT will be payable on all down payments relating to the delivery of en-primeur wines in the European Union. When ordering en-primeur wines, a deposit of the total amount including VAT but excluding delivery costs must be paid. Upon reception of the order and payment, we will send you a paid pro-forma invoice including VAT. Once the wines become available from the estate, in spring 2024 for the 2021 vintage, spring 2025 for the 2022 vintage and (1 year later for certain Sauternes and Barsac wines), we will send the final invoice to the customer showing:
    - the excise duties (presently at €3.19 ex VAT per 0.75 l-bottle of still wine)
    - the transport costs calculated per 75cl bottle delivered in mainland Ireland (currently 0.70 Euros excluding VAT, liable to change).
    - the possible VAT increment in the event of a rate change on the day of the final invoicing.
    Delivery to one address in Ireland for orders over 1800 Euros including VAT is free. On the other hand, if after a delay of two months after the issue of the final invoice for the En-primeur wines, the customer still hasn’t settled the invoice, Millesima will rightfully invoice extra storage charges of the amount of €12 per case and per month of delay.
    Please note there is no cancellation possible if the wine is purchased en-primeur (See “Cancellations” here below).

    All the goods are insured by our company during their transport and are carried at our own risk. Regarding available goods, orders for which the payment was received at our office in Bordeaux on the 21st of the month at the latest, the deliveries are made within a maximum delay of 5 to 6 weeks from this date. However, if 7 days after this delay, exception made for cases of Force Majeure, the good has not yet been delivered, the customer can cancel the contract in writing by registered post with acknowledgement of receipt. The customer will then obtain a refund of his payment apart from all other compensation or damages, within the following 14 days at the most. This delay is indicated as exactly as possible but may vary according to the supplying and transport possibilities of Millesima, as well as the weather conditions. Upon reception of the wines, it is up to the addressee to check the state of the goods and to note any reserve concerning breakage, damage or missing goods on the delivery slip and to inform the delivery company and Millesima in writing by registered post with acknowledgement of receipt within 48 hours in order to preserve his rights. In case of stock shortage of the purchased good, it may be offered to the customer to exchange it, with his agreement, whether with another vintage or another equivalent wine. If not possible, we will refund him within 30 days.
    Payment delays
    All overdue amounts automatically entail the legitimate application without given notice of the payment of interests for delayed payment on the basis of 5% at least of the total value of the outstanding amount. In the event of a recovery through litigation, the settlement of an inclusive payment of 15% of the amount of the order, without loss of the interest for delayed payment and damage, will be required.
    The customer has a period of 14 days from the receipt of his order to exercise his right of withdrawal.
    The customer must at first inform the sales department in writing (email, fax or letter) of his decision before returning the goods (a specific form in PDF for this purpose is available here below*). As the exception, these measures do not apply to orders concerning products subject to customization or a specific request.
    Once the withdrawal transmitted a further period of 14 days is given to the client to return unwanted products in their original packaging for exchange or refund, without penalty, except the cost of the shipment back (looking at €20 ex VAT per case plus an average of € 8.00 ex VAT per bottle recovered, price depending on the region) if you want us to arrange a collection from your address. This right of cancellation does not apply to bottles which have been opened, and they have to be reconditioned securely in their original package and be of a resalable condition.
    Millesima reserves the right to defer refund until all goods are delivered back to our cellars.
    Under the exception provided in paragraph 7 of Article 121-21-8 of the French Code de la Consommation, the right of withdrawal is excluded from sales contracts concerning en-primeur wines.
    Property reserve
    It is expressively understood that all our goods remain our property, wherever they may be, until the complete settlement of the corresponding invoices. This is not an obstacle to the transfer of the risks to the buyer, once the delivery of the goods is effective.
    Contract cancellation
    In the event the customer has not settled payment due on the settlement date and after a period of one month after the final demand for still due settlement, the sale will be cancelled by the seller if it wishes to, and the deposit that might have been paid refunded to the buyer. The seller may as well ask for the goods that are already delivered to be returned, without loss of the interest for delayed payment and damage.
    Applicable law and Jurisdiction
    In the event of issues regarding the application of these here before terms and conditions, we would invite you to find an amicable solution by contacting our customer service department. These general Terms and Conditions will be subject to the Laws of France, under the application of the Rome 1 Regulation.
