ABOUT BURGUNDY CAVE
Premium Burgundy wine has always come with a big price tag, but with the right domaines, sources and merchants, we can still enjoy the best provenance at a reasonable price for both Burgundy and Champagne.
We specialize in wines from the Burgundy and Champagne regions in France, working with over 50 suppliers/wineries all over Europe to deliver the best quality wine.
Some wines are available in stock (the ones in our "Current In Stock" section) but most others are kept in storage in Burgundy or Champagne (the ones in our "Broking List") as we believe wines enjoy the best aging conditions in their homes. We think it is definitely worth the wait to get them shipped directly from their homes.
The usual shipping lead time for these Broking List wines is around 3-6 weeks*. All wines are shipped from sources to Hong Kong via temperature and humidity controlled air freight. We are able to provide accurate shipping lead time after confirmation.
* Shipping lead time varies depending on location of the wine so please talk to us if you are interested in any!
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Alexander Choy has long been fascinated by the extraordinary history and workmanship behind every bottle of wine since a very young age. When he was still underaged, his father, who used to work in France, often brought back dark green bottles of red, white and sparkling "juices" but Alexander was not allowed to drink them. He finally enjoyed his very first glass when he hit 18 years old (the official legal drinking age in Hong Kong) and there was no turning back. Not long after he went to university but the most time he spent reading was not his lecture books but books about wine.
After graduation, he spent years working for commercial giants but soon enough he decided to pursue his passion and started to work in the wine industry and also created his own wine blog in 2013. He was very fortunate to have had the chance to work for one of the most renowned Fine Wine merchants from the UK and from there learned to appreciate Burgundy and Champagne wines; and thanks to his blog (HK Wine Blog - http://hkwineblog.net), he has been invited to visit a number of wineries across Europe, further broadening his knowledge of wine. In recent years, he has also been personally visiting Burgundy every year to stay on top of all the latest trends and explore the up-and-coming domaines to bring fascinating new and best wines back home!
From his years of tasting and knowledge of wine, he is most passionate about Burgundy wine as only Burgundy wine offers the best style and character ranges. Also, the fact that the grapes in just a few metres' difference in vineyard can already be offering different flavours means the level of workmanship required to maintain the quality of each batch of Burgundy wines is just absolutely remarkable.
