Run by Guy Boursot who is extremely knowledgeable about his wines, and coming from a long family line of vintners. Guy trained with Berry Brothers in London and now selects an exciting range of wines from all areas of France, including many from smaller vineyards. Always something new to discover and at very attractive prices. Something for all pockets and... More

Guy Boursot runs this wine retail business in the small town of Ardres 20 minutes from the Channel tunnel terminal. When stocks are low I travel from Wiltshire to Folkestone to Ardres and back in 12 hours including a good lunch, with several cases of Guy's good and fairly-priced wines. He has a good sense, having worked in London for... More

Whenever we go to France we always stop by and fill up the boot, and have been to his new shop also. If the church next door is open do go in its stunning inside. Mr B is English and very helpful.

Recommended by fellow diners last night, a small but comprehensively stocked wine shop, not far from Calais in a very attractive small town. The owner wasn't there, but we were well entertained by his assistant, who spoke excellent English. The wine list is extensive, mostly from small family producers and there are also some spirits and eat de vie for... More

We greatly enjoyed our visit to Guy's wine shop and came away heavily laden. He was very helpful and good at listening to our inexperienced descriptions of what kinds of wine we like. We'll be back in the spring (euro allowing) to get a few sample bottles to enjoy on our trip, before returning to stock up on our way... More

Visited here on a recent press trip and enjoyed a tasting of four excellent wines presented and superbly described by the charismatic Guy Boursot who despite his name is English. He tells a great story of how the mayor and the villagers received an Englishman setting up a wine shop though 10 years later he is still here and they... More

What a great day out in a lovely French small town. Guy Boursot has the most outstanding wine store in the heart of the village. The staff speak excellent English and I have found their recommendations have all been just fine. The shop is well,laid out, and prices are clearly marked. Clearly Guy spends a great deal of time in... More

Great wine shop where you can taste before buying wines at very reasonable Price's, Very pleasant staff who were helpful loaded the car. Just pull up on the pavement outside or park in the cobblestone square opposite. The restaurant opposite is well with a visit not cheap or fast sevice but great food. All in all well worth visiting Ardres... More

So much better than the supermarket style outlets. Boursot just sells French wines from small vineyards. We have buying from him for several years now and have always been pleased with the quality and service

I haven't bought wine in England for about 8 years. This is because I've got into a routine of buying wine twice a year at Boursot's Wine Collection. Two visits a year, and I can re-stock my cellar AND cater for all parties, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and New Year, etc. The service and advice are second-to-none. There is a wide... More
