Just realized another requirement: can you store at these warehouses ex-VAT/under bond, gor later import into the US?
Ex-VAT is difficult.
You need to be approved by the Douane and is geared more toward commercial work due to the paperwork and costs.

Re: Comprehensive Offer: Philippe Pacalet

The back story behind the Cornas is fairly interesting.

The élevage is completed in Hervé Souhaut's cellar and then the barrels are moved to Pacalet's cellars in Beaune for the aging.
Philippe's parcel in Cornas was selected in conjunction wth Thierry Allemand, as they are close friends.

In the Lufthansa first class lounge, there is a window with a custom's officer.

When you enter the lounge from the Schengen area, he will stamp your passport as you are departing.
