Les Vins de Crus : passionate about great wines

Together, they are building 3500m2 of offices and warehouse and move in from Boulevard Pierre 1er, 33000 Bordeux to 4 rue des Aulnes, 33250 Bruges-Bordeaux.

Grands Crus Classés specialists
Experts, passionate and always in contact with the Chateaux, we pride ourselves to understand terroirs particularities, new vinification techniques and to always taste the different vintages to apprehend their evolution to propose them to our clients answering their needs.
Composed by 8 different nationalities, varied and complementary professional backgrounds, our team is reunited around its passion for the wine.
Our great wines
Important owner of Bordeaux Grands Crus allocations bought mostly En Primeur, our love for the wine brought us – surely but slowly – to select and distribute a portfolio of Petits Chateaux from the best terroirs of our region.
We also have the privilege to be part of the very few negociants which distribute some of the best foreign wines of the world.
We require for all the wines we commercialise to have a perfect traceability of their provenance and as consequence an exemplary stocking condition. Knowing that, we do not tend to buy bottles from auctions or products that have travelled outside Bordeaux.
The Grands Crus Classés
LVDC buys En Primeur and in deliverable the most part of Grands Crus Classés and assimilated from all Bordeaux appellations, from Médoc (Haut Médoc, Margaux, St Julien, Pauillac ou St Estèphe), to St Emilion, to Pomerol or Graves and from Pessac Léognan.
The most famous Bordeaux appellations hide a lot of amazing terroirs, stunning wines, at exceptional quality/price ratio. These ones can sometimes surprisingly win over the best Crus when tasted blind!
Wines from the World
LVDC has been selected between very few Bordeaux négociants to distribute some of the greatest wines of the World.
