We buy and sell iconic wines, affordable mature wines from France. Each bottle we offer is bought with the utmost care, from the most reliable sources. Our wines can be purchased in our shop in Paris or on-line and shipped worldwide.

Our history

The story of Vintage & Cie logically begins with… a glass of wine… in 2006. Louis Duquesne, a young French businessman is poured a fantastic Latour 45 at a dinner with a few wine loving friends. It is love at first sight. Louis immediately buys a case, then 3 then a hundred… of the most prestigious wines, and the best vintages. In 2010, Vintage & Cie is founded in order to manage this rapidly growing collection. In September 2014, Le Cercle by Vintage & Cie opens its doors near l’Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Wine lovers in the French capital or buyers on-line finally have a direct access to great wines, stored in a perfect condition. Nowhere else in France nor in Europe can a wine-enthusiast walk into a luxury store and be presented with a 4.5 Litres Réhoboram of Château Latour 1961 or a bottle of Henri Jayer’s Cros Parantoux 1982. Thanks to Le Cercle by Vintage & Cie, these iconic bottles can be reached without obscure intermediaries.

Who we are

Louis Duquesne, founder & owner

After 15 years spent at managing assets for a leading French entrepreneur, Louis Duquesne starts his own private equity fund, in 2012. He invests dominantly in retail. A business-driven personality, he has also turned his other passion for race horses into a successful business.

He actively runs Vintage & Cie and remains its main wine buyer. 

Sébastien Burel, general manager

Joined Vintage & Cie in 2015 as General Manager. With a background in wine production, a 10-year carrier as a wine consultant and journalist, Sébastien brings his expertise to source, advertise and sell the wines of the collection. He is currently a student in the Masters of Wine program. 

Pablo Huarte, manager of Le Cercle by Vintage & Cie

Born and raised in Uruguay, in a family of winemakers, he studies enology in Bordeaux. Trained in international business and marketing, he has joined Vintage & Cie in 2015, where he is in charge of Le Cercle by Vintage & Cie.

Our Collection

What makes Vintage & Cie so unique is its incredible collection of iconic bottles: Château Margaux 1900, a Jeroboam of La Romanée Conti 1964, a case of La Chapelle 1961, a vertical of Château Rayas… In most instances, we own the only available bottle in the world. While others may list wines that they don’t physically own, we only advertise what we store in our own cellars. 

Besides, we offer a broad selection of ready to drink, mature wines from Bourgogne, from Bordeaux, from Champagne and from the Rhône.

We also take pride in our very selective offer of upcoming, young and talented winemakers based in classic wine regions.

Ultimately, we offer a very sharp selection of Cognac, Whisky, Rhum and vintage spirits. 

What you see is what you get: all the photographs published on our website and on-line boutique are original photographs, taken in our cellars from actual bottles.
