A kind of inverted cathedral of wine, L'Intendant draws the visitor down through several levels of vintage, from rare to rarer, via a central spiral staircase which winds within a cylinder of shelves containing some twenty thousand bottles, divided vertically by region. The final basement room contains some of the finest wines France has to offer, but you'll find excellent and affordable ones on the ground floor, too.

Is it possible to order something from the shop ?

I would like to know if there are posters of the stairwell for sale in the shop ?

I have visited this shop in the centre of Bordeaux on many occasions. Fantastic selection, helpful staff but retail prices. Excellent for the odd bottle which may not be readily available elsewhere. Worth a visit anytime; no pressure to buy.

My mother won a bottle of this wine as a present and thought it was lovely, I would love to be able to buy some for her . Do you stock it or do you have and agent in Ireland where we could buy it
