Terms of Sales
The sale of alcohol to minors under the age of 18 is prohibited by French law.
These general conditions of sale apply to products sold by EARL Moulin de Chauvigné
The general conditions of sale set out below imply the full and unreserved acceptance of the buyer.
EARL Moulin de Chauvigné reserves the right to suspend or cancel the sale totally or partially in the event of force majeure defined as any event likely to stop or reduce manufacturing or transport.
All orders only become final after their acceptance by the EARL Moulin de Chauvigné.
EARL Moulin de Chauvigné has the right to request guarantees of solvency even during the execution of an order, when it has serious doubts as to the solvency of the buyer or when the latter refrains from providing the guarantees requested. Furthermore, our commitment to sell cannot exceed the cover granted to the customer by our credit insurance. In the event of a reduction in this cover during the performance of a contract, we reserve the right to interrupt deliveries without the customer being able to invoke any prejudice.
The wines and vintages offered are available while stocks last.
DELIVERY AND GUARANTEES
By express agreement, the delivery times indicated by the seller are approximate and are given as an indication. Delays can in no way justify the refusal of reception, cancellation or the request for damages.
The wines marketed by the EARL Moulin de Chauvigné are guaranteed to be of fair marketable quality and sold approved from our cellars. In all cases, it will be taken into account that the wine is a biologically living product, which evolves over time and that the seller is not responsible for the storage conditions provided by the buyer likely to alter the quality of the wines. To avoid any alteration of our products, our customers undertake to store and keep them in good conditions.
Whatever the mode of transport and the type of vehicle used for the removal of the goods, their loading is systematically checked and validated by the carrier on departure from our cellars. Our goods always travel at the risk and peril of the recipient, who is responsible for verifying the existence of damage and/or missing items at the time of delivery. In the event of damage occurring during transport, it is the recipient's responsibility to exercise any recourse against the carrier in accordance with article L132-7 of the Commercial Code.
Any reasoned reservation or protest must be reported to the carrier under the conditions provided for in Article L133-3 of the Commercial Code.
No return of products, without prior written agreement from us, will be accepted. In case of return of goods and after our agreement, the transport costs are the responsibility of the customer.
Net price including VAT ex cellar.
Our invoices are payable at our head office within the agreed deadlines and mentioned on the invoice according to the applicable legal requirements. The due date is calculated from the invoice date. The deadline set when the order is accepted is binding. The buyer cannot modify the due date without the express agreement of the seller. The invoice is considered paid when the amount shown therein is credited to the seller's bank account. In any event, the payment period agreed between the parties to settle the sums due may not exceed forty five days end of month or sixty days from the date of issue of the invoice (article L441-6 of the Trade). Failure to pay an invoice on the due date will result in the buyer:
Reimburse all the costs incurred by the contentious recovery of the sums due. Any invoice recovered by the litigation department will be increased as a penalty clause by an indemnity fixed at a flat rate of 40 euros.
Pay late payment penalties, in application of the legal provisions, at a rate equal to three times the legal interest rate in force on the due date. These late penalties are due the day following the payment date appearing on the invoice and will run until the payment of the workforce.
The seller reserves the right to stop any pending delivery and condition any acceptance of new orders from the buyer on the fact that the latter is up to date with his payments. In the event that the seller nevertheless accepts the order, he may make it subject to specific payment conditions and require cash payment for all goods.
RETENTION OF OWNERSHIP
EARL Moulin de Chauvigné expressly reserves ownership of the goods delivered and designated on the front until full payment of their price in principal and interest.
In the event that the buyer is subject to legal redress proceedings, he undertakes to inform the seller of this situation by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt. In the absence of payment, the seller reserves the right to take back the goods, which the buyer authorizes immediately and without restriction.
ATTRIBUTION AND JURISDICTION CLAUSE
Any dispute between the parties relating to the interpretation, execution or non-execution of the present and any dispute that may arise between the parties on the occasion of their commercial relations will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the court of the registered office of our society.
These general conditions of sale are expressly subject to French law.
