Welcome to... the Bordeaux Project

In February 2020, we announced the launch of the Bordeaux Project, a pioneering new partnership between Bibendum, several leading Bordeaux estates, and top negociant Compagnie Medocaine. 

What is the Bordeaux Project?

Through this collaboration, Bibendum customers will now be able to source a range of mature wines with perfect provenance, directly from Bordeaux Chateau cellars, at extremely competitive prices. 

Bibendum will be using the direct relationship with participating Chateaux to support an ambitious activation programme, providing staff tastings, time in trade, events and chateau visits throughout the year. Through these activities, we anticipate that Chateaux will be able to forge and foster relationships with prestigious on-trade accounts, changing the way that Cru Classé Bordeaux is sold in the UK. 

Interested? You can find out more about the Bordeaux Project, and meet our featured Bordeaux producers, at the Bibendum Cellar Tasting this September - more details to be announced soon!

A note from... Michael Saunders, Bibendum CEO 

"This is a plan Georges Haushalter (of Compagnie Medocaine) and I hatched several years ago. We believe this project will revolutionise how top Bordeaux is sold in the On Trade. With the majority of Bordeaux Cru Classé wines bought en primeur, we really wanted to facilitate better working relationships between the Chateaux and the restaurants their wines are sold in. Having the wines come direct from the cellars at competitive market prices is a first. This is just the start, and we plan to broaden this range of wines with ongoing availability throughout the year."
