Wine Consultants was originally set up in both the UK and in France as an advisory company, using the wine expertise of Guy Boursot. 

The Boursot family has been continuously involved with wine on both sides of the English Channel since the mid-17th century. Continuing in his family's tradition of wine, Guy worked for 17 years for Berry Bros & Rudd Ltd, both buying and selling wines but left them in order to rekindle his family's old wine business of A. Boursot & Co. which he then ran for 11 years.

Guy has wide ranging experience in the wine business in both the UK and in France. He is a wine writer, lecturer, consultant, wine merchant and vineyard tour operator - and building on his solid and trustworthy reputation, he opened his own wine shop in northern France in 2006.

"Boursot's Wine Collection" has two wine shops in the Nord Pas de Calais. Its head office is in an attractive 250 year old listed building in the pretty and historic town of Ardres, just 15 minutes south of Calais. In addition, Boursot's has its warehouse and shop in Marquise, ideally situated two minutes off the A16 motorway to Boulogne sur Mer, Le Touquet and Normandy. In both locations you can be assured of receiving good, sensible advice and you can taste the wines before you decide.

All wines are personally selected by Guy Boursot to offer great quality for the price. Prices start from around £3 and of course offer you the huge savings obtained by buying in France. Assuming your purchases are for personal consumption you can bring these back into the UK without paying the UK's penal rates of duty or any other taxes, saving yourself at least £3 on each bottle of still wine and around £8 on each bottle of Champagne.

So if you are planning an event such as a party or a wedding, it's eminently sensible to hop across the channel, either with P&O or Eurotunnel, enjoy a great lunch and pick up some guaranteed quality wines at low French prices.

Once discovered, visitors regularly come back to Boursot's in Ardres or Marquise, not just for their wines but also for the very French experience that is such a contrast, and an easy hop, from southern England. The relatively little known town of Ardres has a selection of restaurants, small shops and its own lakes to welcome those who want to get away from the scrums of day trippers that only know about Calais and its hypermarkets and booze bunkers.

Informative yet fun Gourmet Dinners are also hosted in the locality, allowing customers of Boursot's Wine Collection to enjoy a complete and superior wine experience than that generally found in the north of France.

Boursot's Wine Collection also offers a wine receiving service, allowing you to order directly from your favourite vineyards for delivery to its shop, so that you can easily hop across the channel to collect your wines (still at the French duty rates).

Escape for the day or the weekend and enjoy some of the finer things France has to offer - and save yourself a fortune!

Wine Consultants and Boursot's Wine Collection offer you:

  • Experienced advice at whichever level you require
  • Guaranteed quality wines at very low French prices
  • The ability to taste before you buy
  • The choice of two attractive locations for your wine shopping
  • A receiving service for your favourite wines
  • Talks and tastings for your groups in France or the UK

FORTHCOMING WINE DINNER
Saturday 26th January: The Boursot Blues Buster Dinner: “Off Piste” with Guy Boursot at Restaurant le Cygne, Saint-Omer

January is when many of us need a bit of cheering up and Boursot’s Blues Buster Dinner has been successful in achieving this over several years now. A good dinner with four courses and six wines in convivial company in a lively town, a million miles away from Blighty, should meet all your expectations and recharge you for the remaining winter weeks.
Over dinner Guy Boursot will introduce you to some more unusual and surprising wines that you might not have normally considered and talk after dinner about the latest goings-on in the wine world and what effects they might bring to the market over the coming year.
The Restaurant Le Cygne, close to the impressive cathedral in the old part of Saint-Omer, has long been a favourite. After a change of ownership in 2016, the quality of cuisine remains high and we will be taking the restaurant’s vaulted cellar for our private dinner for around 30 of you.
The price per ticket is 76€ (about £68 at today's rate) to include 4 courses, 6 wines and all entertainment.
Accommodation is inexpensive at the Hotel Ibis within easy walking distance. We have not booked any rooms but you should not have any problem on availability for when you wish to book. If there is a problem, then do get in touch and we can make other suggestions in town.
This dinner may be booked now through ardres@boursot.co.uk.

Saturday 23rd March: “A Pre-Brexit Extravaganza!” Gourmet Dinner and A Tour de Cuisine at Hôtel la Matelote, Boulogne sur Mer

Just before the end of March seems at the moment to be an opportune moment to enjoy a French Gastronomic Dinner when we will be pairing higher priced wines with a higher level of menu! Both should be memorable.
On this Saturday, we are adding two additional events. During the afternoon, chef proprietor Stellio Lestienne will offer you a glass of wine and then lead you “verre en main” on a tour of his Michelin starred kitchens. As you are coming via us, there will be no cost to you. For what it’s worth, Stellio used to chef at The Waterside in Bray and so speaks good English!
There will also be a tutored tasting “Ten Summer Wines” given by Guy Boursot at the hotel that afternoon. There will be a contrast of styles and Guy will explain what makes each of them different.
You might also wish to take advantage of the hotel’s indoor pool and hammam which are free to guests.
The all-in price of this very special 4 course dinner with 6 wines will be 95€ (currently approx. £85).
To book, please click www.boursot.co.uk/secure.html and please indicate the number of people in your party and which of the additional Saturday events you would like to attend. We charge 50% of the ticket price now with the final 50% being payable on the day. You will receive a confirmation from us when you book.
