BURGUNDY SPECIALIST, BORDEAUX EXPERT

Latest news:

September 2019

We are delighted to announce that Goedhuis & Co received two of the most prestigious prizes in the wine trade for the second year in a row: Decanter Retailer Awards for Best Burgundy Specialist (for the 5th time) and Best En Primeur Campaign of the Year for both Bordeaux and Burgundy.

Please see below Peter Richards MW (Awards Chairman) Winner Presentations:

BEST BURGUNDY SPECIALIST
“Numerous visits to the region, a dedicated website section, excellent communication and interaction, undeniable commercial success plus a sumptuous and growing Burgundy range with tantalising parcels and older vintages: these were the key reasons for the triumph of Goedhuis.”

BEST EN PRIMEUR CAMPAIGN
“What won this category was not just sound business basics (sensible storage policy, fair pricing, a superlative list that continues to grow and improve) but also a notably proactive and personal approach to the whole en primeur experience. Doing all that, was Goedhuis.”

July 2019

We are thrilled to have been named both IWC Bordeaux and Burgundy Specialist Merchant of the Year. We are well established as one of a handful of top Burgundy specialists in the country, but as there are many considerably larger players in the Bordeaux field we were absolutely delighted to receive this endorsement of the quality of our Bordeaux portfolio.

This is testament to the fantastic range of Bordeaux and Burgundy producers we are privileged to work with, old friends and new, grand and modest, across the length and breadth of these two incomparable regions. We would also like to thank our brilliant clients, who continue to buy, drink and enjoy these wonderful wines.

OUR RANGE

Of all fine wine producing regions Burgundy and Bordeaux remain the most captivating and the most sought-after. At Goedhuis & Co we are committed to providing our clients with an unparalleled range of wines from both the most respected, established Chateaux and Domaines in these regions and also up-and-coming relatively unheard of producers.

For our specialist Burgundy and Bordeaux lists we represent all major appellations across a range of quality levels at different price points. In Burgundy we work with over 50 different producers and we pride ourselves on selecting as broad a range as possible, from small, upcoming estates under the helm of the new generation such as Vincent Charton in Mercurey, Benjamin Leroux in Beaune and Cyril Audoin in Marsannay through to the great established names such as Domaines Ponsot, Comte Armand, Sylvain Cathiard and Jean-Philippe Fichet, from whom we purchase directly as a selected distributor in the UK. In Bordeaux we have close relationships with many major chateaux and negociants to ensure everything from Bordeaux AC to First Growths are well-represented.

OTHER ACCOLADES

In both 2014 and 2015 we have also been included in the London Stock Exchange’s “1000 Companies to Inspire Britain”, an annual celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises in the UK.

We were also selected for Fine Wine section of The Spear’s 500; Spear’s new essential guide, launched in 2014, to the top private client service providers for high net worth individuals and their families. It is the first comprehensive guide across all these private client fields in the world and inclusion is a recognition of the exceptional level of personal service we aim to deliver to our clients.
