If it is a French wine, send it by parcel post directly to the producer with a short letter of explanation (circumstances of purchase, conservation, tasting). The producer can thank you for the information you provide, and after analysis, replace the bottle.
If it is a foreign wine, contact us and we will take care of the replacement.
