Dear Clients and Vendors,

We recently discovered some of our clients and suppliers were receiving fake offers under the name of our commercial colleague, Romain Herisson.

We believe those fake offers have been sent since Saturday December 19th, 2020 (but they could also have been sent earlier) from a similar email address as ours.

The fake offers have been sent from rherisson@vins-rare.com while our correct address is rherisson@vins-rares.fr (our domain name is vins-rares.fr).

DO NOT reply to those offers.

Investigation is ongoing and we are considering taking legal action.

Specialist in rare wines

Our job

For more than 30 years, our organization allows us to find great wines and ready-to-drink wines from different French and world wine regions.

The wines we offer can have three origins: direct purchases at the Domaine, private cellars, or trusted professionals.

The wines that we propose can have three sources: Purchases at Domaines

Burgundy: Comtes Lafon, Domaine de la Romanée Conti, Domaine Leroy, Raveneau, Rouget, and Rousseau.

Rhone : Château de Beaucastel, Domaines Clos des Popes, Gérin, Jaboulet, and La Mordorée.

Through LEGRAND & ASSOCIES (a sister company within the LEGRAND & CO group) we can supply our customers with Bordeaux en-primeur wines.

Private Collector Cellars

The cellars of private individuals constitute a constant and diverse source of supply. This gives us the opportunity to acquire wines typically unavailable on the open market. The quality of conservation of the bottles purchased is subject to rigorous controls guaranteeing the satisfaction of our customers.

Depending on market opportunities, we buy some wines from trusted suppliers.


We have consolidated our position in the fine wine market thanks to the loyalty of our global trade client base.

Our customers are importers, traders, wine merchants, hotels and restaurants all over the world and with a focus on the United States, Asia and Europe. We also sell to private collectors subject to a minimum purchase of 1500 €. Our prices are exclusive of taxes, ex-works Beaune (21), subject unsold, and without engagement until invoiced. Our wines are invoiced in euros and delivered with the necessary customs documents and certificates of origin. Orders are payable upon receipt of invoice prior to removal of wines.


All our wines are stored in Beaune in Burgundy. Our bottles are located in a climate controlled warehouse protected from light and dust. Each bottle entering our warehouse is systematically checked: measuring levels and assessing the quality of the labels. Any imperfections in bottles are indicated in our offers and prices by abbreviated codes. We can send digital photos of all imperfect bottles. The rigor we bring to these controls allows us to work in conditions of trust with our customers who have the certainty to buy quality bottles.
