Grand Cru International is a family business, established in 2001. Based on a firm foundation of working with fine French domains, we have strived to create a unique portfolio of wines that best meet the needs of our clients.
Our collection is threefold. As well as our private collection, which we have developed working together with the winemakers, we also represent the products of well established wineries, and provide Grand Cru quality wines for our collector clients.
Ever since we were introduced to the world of fine wine, by our friend and mentor, Patrick Pages of Chantoiseau, we have been committed students and later, ambassadors, to wine culture and history. We spent eight passionate years filling the ears and glasses of our clients in Budapest with insight on French wines though The House of French Wines.
Then, with an urge for vagabonding, and reaching out to learn beyond the borders of France, we spent several years exploring the worlds wine regions. Some we visited briefly, while with other we lingered longer, living for three years in Tuscany.
To share our treasures we have created a collection that we are continually refining an expanding of top value wines. We aim to combine the knowledge we learned from local wine makers, and the desires of our clients to bring them the best wines for their needs.
We value big names and famous wineries, and offer a portfolio of Grand Cru quality wines with recent and mature vintages to our collector clients. At the same time we seek out excellent quality wines at smaller prices for the pleasure of everyday drinking.
Our private label wines are created by working together with the winemakers to best meet the needs of our clients. Our goal is to show the characteristics of each region, with well balanced wines that stand their ground in their category. Seeking wines made as naturally as possible is always a priority. In our experience, both viticulture and winemaking with little intervention and additions provides the best quality.
For many years we worked as the exclusive importer of many fine French domains to Hungary. We had the privilege of representing Champagne Billecart-Salmon, Champagne Pol Roger, Champagne Bollinger, E. Guigal, Maison Louis Latour, Domain Durup, Château de la Gardine.
Today, working in a wider geographical area, we have the pleasure of continuing to represent certain of these wineries in some of the countries where our wines are present.
We strive to be a top resources for our clients with interests in Grand Cru wines, for investment, collection and drinking pleasure. We participate in the Bordeaux Primeurs tastings, and maintain close relations with wineries and negotiants specialised in top level wines. Access to both current and more mature vintages is essential for us. Our wine list is continually evolving. If you are interested, kindly request our current Grand Cru price list. We are also available for consultation on collections and investments.
