Terms of Sales

Application of the General Conditions of Sale

These general conditions of sale (hereinafter referred to as “C.G.V.”) are applicable to the sale of wine by the company Chateau Sainte Barbe (hereinafter referred to as “the seller”) to any professional buyer residing in metropolitan France. C.G.V. as well as the price list are systematically addressed or submitted to each buyer to allow him to place an order and are deemed to be accepted in full by him as soon as the order is placed. No general conditions of purchase can, except express and written acceptance of the seller, prevail against C.G.V. Any contrary condition posed by the buyer will be ineligible against the seller. No tolerance by the seller of any nature, importance or duration whatsoever, shall be construed as a waiver of any future use of any of the C.G.V.


In accordance with the French law n ° 98-536 of 1 July 1998, transposing Directive 96/9 / EC of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases. Château Sainte Barbe owns all or part of the databases that make up this site.

  1. Orders are final as of their written confirmation by the seller. Acceptance may also result from the provision of wines. The seller reserves the right to cancel a final order in case of discovery of an alteration of quality likely to damage the reputation of his own, without any recourse of the buyer.
  2. Any order confirmed by the seller can only be modified with his written consent. In any case, the deposits already paid are retained by the seller.


The wines are sold approved or deemed approved from the vendor’s cellars.

Evolution of stocks

The success of certain vintages and annual variations in the quantities produced can lead to stockouts. Any order which has been the subject of a deposit will, in such circumstances, be refunded, without any compensation being claimed in this respect.

Issuance and transfer of risks – delivery

  1. The delivery of the products is carried out as soon as they are made available in the seller’s cellars. As a result, the wines travel at the risk and peril of the buyer who is obliged to make sure accordingly.
  2. The delivery is carried out, either by their removal operated by the buyer in the cellars of the seller, or by their delivery to the carrier. When the wine is to be withdrawn by the buyer, the collection period may in no case be more than eight days from the notice of availability to the seller, unless special conditions expressly agreed between the parties. When the goods must be delivered, the delivery may be, at the option of the seller, be operated by him, or carried out by any provider of his choice. The transport is carried out in postage paid, the transport costs being then reinvoiced to the buyer. Deliveries are made according to availability and in the order of arrival orders. The seller is authorized to make full or partial deliveries. Delivery times are only indicative and are indicated as exactly as possible, and subject to availability of production, transportation or any other event not attributable to the fault of the seller. As a result, delivery time overruns can not result in damages, withholding or cancellation of orders in progress. However, if two (2) months after the indicative date of delivery, the wine has not been delivered for any reason other than a case of force majeure, the sale can then be solved at the request of the buyer. The buyer can obtain restitution of his deposit possibly paid, to the exclusion of any other indemnity. The following are considered as cases of force majeure: war, riot, fire, strikes, accidents, natural disasters.

Reception – transport

  1. When the wine is made available or, where applicable, the wine is delivered, the buyer must check the condition. It is reminded that the reception extinguishes all action against the carrier for damage or partial loss if within three days of receipt, the buyer has not notified the carrier its reserves (Article L 133-3 of the Commercial Code) .
  2. Without prejudice to the provisions to be taken vis-à-vis the carrier within three days of receipt of the products, any reservation on delivery or refusal to delivery issued by the buyer for damage, missing or for non-conformity of products delivered to the waybill must be
