Domaine Dillon adds ‘Big Bottle’ service

Domaine Clarence Dillon has launched an online retailer through its Paris shop that is dedicated to selling and sourcing French wines and spirits in large formats.

Called ‘Big French Bottle’ the site is an affiliate of the group’s bricks and mortar Paris wine shop, Le Cave du Château, but will focus solely on selling fine wines and spirits in formats of magnum (two bottles) to Balthazar (16 bottles).

As well as drawing on the extensive range of large format bottles sold in the shop, Big French Bottle will also try to source large format wines from a much wider array of producers on request – either through trusted négociants at the Place de Bordeaux or through the estates themselves.

The service is not exclusive to just customers in France or mainland Europe but globally (with shipping costs of course) and all orders can be insured, tracked and will of course be securely and safely packaged.

The wines already available on the website include labels not only from the Domaine Dillon stable (Haut-Brion and La Mission-Haut-Brion among them) but from other Bordeaux classed growths, Burgundies, Beaujolais, Sancerre, Champagne and the Languedoc, as well as spirits from Calvados, Cognac, Armagnac and Alsace and even the rare Burgundian whisky made by Michel Couvreur.

The wines on offer also include a lot of older vintages such as 2003 Haut-Bailly, 1990 Latour, 2005 Clos Fourtet, 1981 Haut-Brion and 1999 Bollinger RD.

The range spans not only ‘great’ names such as Lafite and Dom Pérignon but also some producers usually classed among the more ‘artisanale’ in French viticulture such as Ganevat in Jura and l’Anglore in the Rhône.
