TERMS OF SALE
The prices that appear on the site are in euros all taxes included (TTC), and include shipping costs to metropolitan France. They take into account the value added tax (VAT) applicable on the day of the order. Any rate change may be passed on.
Everyone is responsible for carefully checking their order before payment and must first complete an identification form mentioning their contact details. We reserve the right to accept the order or not and to express reservations, in particular in the event of unavailability of a product.
The payment of an order can be made:
– By credit card CB, Visa or MasterCard, on the secure server of Woocommerce
– By cheque
– Wire Transfer
The order is only validated once full payment has been received.
We use packaging specially designed for transport. However, the wines travel at the risk and peril of the recipient. We recommend checking the number and contents of the boxes on delivery, even if they appear to be in good condition. In the event of an anomaly, it is up to the recipient to make reservations with the carrier, who is solely responsible. Without guarantee against the consequences of freezing or faulty storage.
The delivery cannot exceed 30 days from the validation of the order. If this period is exceeded, the customer can cancel the order by email and obtain a refund. Outside the delivery area, contact us so that we can find a solution.
Packages are generally delivered in 3 to 5 working days via UPS from the dispatch of the order.
Bad weather such as snow or violent storms, carrier strikes or the absence of order confirmation constitute delays in delivery beyond our control and cannot engage our responsibility.
The champagne must be kept lying down in a cool place, away from light. The conservation of the foam depends in fact on this constant position of the bottles. We use top quality cork stoppers and, after corking for a certain time, they no longer return to their initial shape: this does not affect the quality of the champagne.
Champagne should be served chilled, but not iced. The ideal temperature is 6°C to 8°C. It is necessary to avoid the prolonged stay in the refrigerator, which would break the wine. Better to prefer a bucket half filled with ice and water. For more information consult the descriptions of each champagne.
