Bottled wines available now
An invoice indicating the prices in HK$ and including transport charges will be issued by Millésima and mailed to the customer's invoicing address.
Any indication as to when an order is shipped, due to arrive or meant to be delivered is only an estimate. Such estimates are given in good faith and we will use our reasonable endeavors to meet them. We will not accept liability for any failure to deliver according to the estimated dates. "En Primeur" Wines will not be shipped before the date on which all the wines are in our physical possession and ready for delivery. HK$400 will be charged for each local delivery within city area (per delivery address). Extra charge will be applied for Tung Chung, Lantau & Outlying Islands. Additional charge on long/distance carry or stairs may be involved. All the goods are insured by our company during their transport and are carried at our own risk. The deliveries are made in an average delay of 2 month as from the date of reception of final payment of the final invoices at our office in Bordeaux. This delay is indicated as exactly as possible but may vary according to the supplying and transport possibilities of Millésima, as well as the weather conditions. The supplementary delays for delivery will in no means be compensated, accounted nor enable the cancellation of the order. However, if after a delay of one month upon written claim by the customer, the goods have still not been delivered, the sale could then be cancelled by either one of the parties. The customer will then obtain the refund of his payment excluding any other compensation or damage, within a maximum deadline of one month. In all circumstances, the delivery of the goods within this delay can only be made if the customer has indicated the exact information, address and telephone contact of the addressee to the sales assistant. If this information is not correctly communicated, Millésima will not be liable for any further delay or non-delivery of the goods. Upon reception of the wines, it is up to the addressee to check the state of the goods and to note any reserve concerning broken, damaged or missing goods on the delivery slip and to inform the delivery company and Millésima by recorded delivery letter within 48 hours in order to preserve his rights.
Force Majeure
Millésima shall not be liable for any delay or failure in its performance caused by or resulting from acts of God, fire, flood, accident, riot, war, government intervention, embargoes, strikes, labour difficulties, equipment failures, or any other causes beyond the control of Millésima.
Payment delays
All overdue amounts automatically entail the legitimate application and without given notice of the payment of interests for delayed payment on the basis of three times the legal rate of interests. Furthermore, if after a period of two months upon availability and final invoicing of en-primeur wines, the final invoice for transport and eventual duty and VAT has not been settled, Millésima will invoice extra storage charges of HK$100 per case and per month. In the event of a recovery through litigation, the settlement of an inclusive payment of 15% of the amount of the order, without prejudice of the interest for delayed payment and damage, will be required.
Bottled wines available now
The customer has a delay of seven working days as from the delivery of his order to return the goods in their original package, for an exchange or a refund within a delay of thirty days, without penalty except for the return transport costs. The customer is required to inform the commercial service by writing (e-mail, fax, letter) before returning the goods. If the ordered goods are out of stock, Millésima will be allowed to suggest a replacement by another vintage or an equivalent wine, with the customer's agreement. If the customer then decides to return the exchanged goods, Millésima will pay the return transport costs.
En-primeur wines
