4.2 In the case of Goods purchased 'en primeur', those Goods may be stored in bulk in the region of their production. Until the Goods are bottled and transferred to Corney & Barrow's bonded warehouse, they cannot be segregated and the Customer may have a contractual rather than a proprietary interest in them.

4.3 Risk of loss or damage to Goods shall pass to the Customer when the Goods are physically delivered to or collected by either the Customer or an agent acting on behalf of the Customer.

5. RETENTION OF TITLE - TRADE CUSTOMERS

5.1 Until such time as Corney & Barrow has received payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for all Goods that Corney & Barrow has from time to time supplied to a Trade Customer (including any applicable VAT, duty and delivery charges), all such Goods supplied to that Trade Customer shall remain the property of Corney & Barrow.

5.2 Until ownership of Goods has passed to a Trade Customer, the Trade Customer shall (unless the Goods are held as Reserves or have been resold in accordance with paragraph 5.3):

5.4 Without prejudice to any other remedy that Corney & Barrow may have, Corney & Barrow may, at any time, revoke the Trade Customer's power of sale under paragraph 5.3 by notice to the Trade Customer if the Trade Customer is in default in payment of any sum whatsoever due to Corney & Barrow, or if any cheque (or other negotiable instrument) drawn by the Trade Customer in favour of Corney & Barrow is dishonoured on presentation for payment, or if Corney & Barrow has bona fide doubt as to the solvency of the Trade Customer.

5.5 A Trade Customer's power of sale under paragraph 5.3 shall automatically cease if, in the case of a Trade Customer who is an individual, that Trade Customer has a bankruptcy order made against him/her or makes an arrangement or composition with his/her creditors, or otherwise takes the benefit of any statutory provision in force from time to time for the relief of insolvent debtors, or, in the case of a Trade Customer which is an entity, that Trade Customer is being wound-up or enters into a company voluntary arrangement (within the meaning of Part 1 Insolvency Act 1986) or is placed into administration, administrative receivership or voluntary liquidation or a receiver is appointed over any of its assets or the Trade Customer enters into any other insolvency proceedings governed by the provisions of the Insolvency Act 1986 and/or the Law of Property Act 1925 (in each case as consolidated, re-enacted, modified or replaced from time to time) or any analogous insolvency proceedings in any other applicable jurisdiction. A Trade Customer shall notify Corney & Barrow without delay if any of the events specified in this paragraph occurs.

Corney & Barrow may dispose of the recovered Goods so as to discharge any sums owed by the Trade Customer to Corney & Barrow.

5.9 Corney & Barrow may maintain an action for the purchase price of the Goods notwithstanding that ownership of them has not passed to the Trade Customer.

6. RETURNS, BREAKAGES AND NON DELIVERY

6.1 If any wine purchased from Corney & Barrow fails, for any reason, to give satisfaction, Corney & Barrow will replace, or issue a credit for, that bottle of wine provided that the wine is returned to Corney & Barrow within one month after the earlier of (a) the invoice date for the wine and (b) the date of payment for the wine. Corney & Barrow is not obliged under this guarantee to deliver any replacement wine to an address outside the United Kingdom.

6.2 Private Customers have the right to withdraw from a contract entered into with Corney & Barrow within 14 days following the day on which the Goods come into their physical possession without giving any reason. To exercise the right of withdrawal, a Private Customer must give written notice to Corney & Barrow by emailing us at wine@corneyandbarrow.com or by writing to us at 1 Thomas More Street London E1W 1YZ. A withdrawal notice is available here. If a Private Customer withdraws from a contract, Corney & Barrow shall reimburse to the Private Customer all payments received from it, including any costs of delivery, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which it has collected the Goods or the Private Customer has supplied evidence of having sent back the Goods, whichever is the earlier. A Private Customer's right of withdrawal under this paragraph shall not apply to wine purchased 'en primeur'.

6.3 Customers who have purchased wine 'en primeur' have the right to change their mind in respect of, and be issued a credit for, that wine provided that they notify Corney & Barrow in writing within one month after the earlier of
(a) the invoice date for the wine and
(b) the date of payment for the wine (in each case, excluding VAT, duty and delivery charges).

6.4 Corney & Barrow offers a "sale or return" service for parties within its London van delivery area and within its Scotland van delivery area.

7.4 Reserves will be insured by Corney & Barrow against all risks of physical loss or damage as at the date of such loss or damage subject to the policy terms or conditions.

Corney & Barrow will rely solely on the accompanying documentation provided by the Customer and/or the designated warehouse from where the wine was delivered/collected, as being valid authentication of the description and quantity of the goods upon acceptance by Corney & Barrow. Corney & Barrow will not accept liability for either the provenance or condition of goods purchased from other sources or for any defect or other fault that these goods may have or may develop.

5.2 Until ownership of the Goods has passed to a Trade Customer, the Trade Customer shall (unless the Goods are held as Reserves or have been resold in accordance with paragraph 5.3):

5.4 Without prejudice to any other remedy that Corney & Barrow may have, Corney & Barrow may, at any time, revoke the Customer's power of sale under paragraph 5.3 by notice to the Trade Customer if the Trade Customer is in default in payment of any sum whatsoever due to Corney & Barrow, or if any cheque (or other negotiable instrument) drawn by the Trade Customer in favour of Corney & Barrow is dishonoured on presentation for payment, or if Corney & Barrow has bona fide doubt as to the solvency of the Customer.

5.5 A Trade Customer's power of sale under paragraph 5.3 shall automatically cease if, in the case of a Trade Customer who is an individual, that Trade Customer has a bankruptcy order made against him/her or makes an arrangement or composition with his/her creditors, or, in the case of a Trade Customer which is an entity, that Trade Customer becomes insolvent is being wound-up or enters into an arrangement or take-over or reconstruction or amalgamation merger or is placed into administration, administrative receivership or voluntary liquidation or a receiver is appointed over any of its assets or the Trade Customer enters into any other bankruptcy or winding up proceedings or any analogous insolvency proceedings in any other applicable jurisdiction. A Trade Customer shall notify Corney & Barrow without delay if any of the events specified in this paragraph occurs.

5.6 Upon the revocation of the Trade Customer's power of sale under paragraph 5.4 or its automatic cessation under paragraph 5.5, all amounts payable in respect of all Goods supplied shall become due immediately whether or not such amounts are then due and payable.

5.7 Each Trade Customer grants Corney & Barrow, its agents and employees (with such transport as is necessary) an irrevocable licence at any time to enter any premises of the Trade Customer, or to which the Trade Customer has access, where Goods may be or are believed to be situated for the purpose of inspecting the Goods to which Corney & Barrow has title or, where the Trade Customer's power of sale has been revoked or ceased, to recover any Goods to which Corney & Barrow has title. Corney & Barrow may dispose of the recovered Goods as to discharge any sums owed by the Trade Customer to Corney & Barrow.

5.8 The rights of Corney & Barrow set out in this paragraph 5 shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding termination of the relevant contract with the Trade Customer.

6. RETURNS AND BREAKAGES

6.2 If a bottle of wine purchased from Corney & Barrow is found to be corked or below Corney & Barrow’s quality standards then Corney & Barrow will replace, or issue a credit for, that bottle of wine provided that the wine is returned to Corney & Barrow within one month after delivery to the Customers address.

6.3 Claims for breakages will only be allowed if the Customer notifies Corney & Barrow as soon as possible (and, in any event, within 7 days) after delivery. The Customer must retain breakages and accompanying packaging for examination by Corney & Barrow or its agent.

7. RESERVE STORAGE

7.1 Corney & Barrow offers storage facilities in the UK with Octavian, Corsham, to its Customers for Goods purchased from Corney & Barrow or (in accordance with paragraph 7.5) from other sources. Corney & Barrow does not currently offer storage facilities for customers’ reserves in Singapore.

7.2 Storage charges shall be at the prevailing rate plus any other taxes (where applicable) per year (or part year) per case. Charges will be rendered annually in arrears or when the Reserves are delivered or collected and are to be paid by direct debit or as otherwise agreed with Corney & Barrow. For accounts opened after 1st June 2004, annual storage charges will be collected by direct debit as a condition of storage being provided. Corney & Barrow's storage rental year runs from 1st June to 31st May. A list of Reserves will be sent to the Customer annually in June with an invoice for storage for the year ending on the immediately preceding 31st May.

7.3 Reserves can only be made and withdrawn in multiples of one case.

7.4 Reserves will be insured by Corney & Barrow against all risks of physical loss or damage as at the date of such loss or damage subject to the policy terms or conditions. Although it is Corney & Barrow's intention to cover the present market value of any losses, in view of the difficulty in assessing the total market value and the market value of individual rarities, Corney & Barrow can only try to ensure that full compensation is recovered in cases of loss.

7.5 As an additional service, Corney & Barrow can offer storage for Goods purchased from other sources. Corney & Barrow will rely solely on the accompanying documentation provided by the Customer and/or the designated warehouse from where the wine was delivered/collected, as being valid authentication of the description and quantity of the goods upon acceptance by Corney & Barrow. Corney & Barrow will not accept liability for either the provenance or condition of goods purchased from other sources or for any defect or other fault that these goods may have or may develop. For the avoidance of doubt, goods purchased from other sources shall, as between Corney & Barrow and the Customer and subject to Corney & Barrow’s rights in paragraph 8 be the property of the Customer.

7.6 Corney & Barrow’s records will distinguish the ownership of Reserves from the ownership of Corney & Barrow’s own trading stock. Reserves will not be stored on the same pallets as Corney & Barrow’s own trading stock.

7.7 Corney & Barrow may require any Customer instructions to deal with Reserves to be confirmed in writing before acting on those instructions.

8. LIEN

9.2Corney & Barrow shall not be liable to the Customer for ullages or for any deterioration in the condition of any wine (which can occur naturally to all wines no matter how well cared for), whether that wine is in reserve storage with Corney & Barrow or stored separately by or on behalf of the Customer.

(b) any special, indirect or consequential loss.
