The judges commented as follows:

"A mouth-watering Burgundy list (1,500 wines, constituting 50% of the range); engaging information and analysis; excellent relationships with suppliers and customers and impressive sales growth – just a few reasons why Goedhuis won."

"The reason Goedhuis excels at en primeur is due in no small part to the exemplary way in which it communicates and engages with both its customers and suppliers. So it was no surprise to see the success of both its Bordeaux and Burgundy campaigns in this category, with Bordeaux edging it for sales performance and growth in very challenging circumstances."

This is testament to the fantastic range of Burgundy and  Bordeaux domaines, chateaux and negociants we are privileged to work with, old friends and new, grand and modest, across the length and breadth of these incomparable regions. We would also like to thank our brilliant clients, who continue to buy, drink and enjoy these wonderful wines, and our amazing, committed, hard-working team, who make it all possible.

July 2021: We are thrilled to receive two of the most prestigious prizes in the wine trade at the recent IWC Awards: Best Burgundy Specialist 2021 and Best En Primeur Specialist 2021 for Rhône, Burgundy and Bordeaux. We were also shortlisted for Best Bordeaux Specialist category.

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.
