    "Millésima is part of the family-owned-and-operated Group Bernard, whose parent company Lucien Bernard was founded in 1928, specialising in wines and spirits. A graduate of ESC Bordeaux with a Master's Degree in Economics, Patrick Bernard first worked at Banque du Drouas before joining the family business through Lucien Bernard. In 1983, he established a company by the name of Vins des Grands Vignobles, which became Millésima in June of 1988, dedicated to the traditional trade of Bordeaux crus classé wines. On January 1, 1988, the company published its first catalogue of the 100 greatest classified growths of Bordeaux, with the objective being to focus on sale to individual customers. From 1992 onwards, a printed catalogue has been published and sent out to the following countries: Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Austria, French and German Switzerland, Great Britain, Ireland, Luxembourg, Italy and Spain. A true pioneer of the modern age, Millésima has been moving towards e-commerce ever since 1997, developing its platform for online wine sales through its 15 websites, each adapted to different foreign markets. Representing the fourth generation of the family business, it is today Fabrice Bernard who has succeeded Patrick Bernard at the helm of Millésima. After graduating ESC Amiens and working for Renault Credit International and Nissan Finance, he joined Millésima in 2007 as Marketing Manager, becoming Managing Director in 2012 and Chief Executive Officer in 2017, in the footsteps of his father."

    BEST GERMAN WINE SHOP

    In BWW Competition 2020, the Best German Wine Shop of the World -title was awarded to Paulson Rare Wine. 

     

    The difficulty to obtain single bottles of mature wine was the reason we started "Paulson Rare Wine" in 1986. This company has specialised in the sale of old and rare wines by mail order and has been growing steadily ever since. We have over the years received an increasing amount of enquiries from abroad, particularly since our first presence on the Internet in 1997. This led to the launch of rare-wine.com as a source for great mature wine for the winelover anywhere in the world.

    We love great wine and spend a large part of our time at tastings all over the world. At most blind-tastings we have found that apart from the truly "greats", whose quality we all know, there are always wines without such great reputations that are very close in quality to these but at a fraction of their price. It is a challenge for us to find these wines and to be able to offer them to our customers. Since we have tasted a large range of the greatest vintages and wines in the world, we can advise you on most wines from our own experience.

    We offer a great selection of mature vintages, in particular the very best vintages this century. The main part of our offer consists of the greatest red wine in the world - Bordeaux. There is also a reasonable selection of Sauternes and Burgundy and of course fine wines from around the world. We are also importing one of the very best growers champagnes - Champagne Chartogne-Taillet - since over 20 years. 

    We started our Broking Service in 2003 to be able to offer well stored wines from private cellars at fair prices. All wines offered by us have been examined by us and are lying in our cellars.
