Owner description: Boursot's Wine Collection is a specialist wine seller offering French wines at all levels upwards from £3 a bottle. Personal service and good advice, together with the option to try many wines prior to deciding, make this a "must visit" attraction. Boursot's second shop is in Marquise between Calais and Boulogne.

I first met Guy on a girls weekend to Lille many years ago and had an offer for his shop from the Euro Tunnel tickets. Since then, he has moved to a fabulous new shop in Ardres and I go whenever I can and have taken friends too. You can also try before you buy on many wines, or order online to collect as you wizz through. Possibly the most memorable trip to visit his shop was for one of his birthday weekends with a meal at Hotel Atlantiique, Wimmereux as it coincides with my birthday. The whole evening was very enjoyable with great wines, excellent food and a great speaker. It doesn't matter if you don't know a great deal about wine other than what you like - know one makes you feel awkward or out of place as evenings are very informal. It is a great way to spend a night or weekend in a very pleasant part of France that is so easy to get to. What are you waiting for!

I have been a supporter from the days of the 'other location' . The advice and service have been most helpful, and an email, after a view of the list ,just a few days before one's visit guarantees your wine ready for collection , and a quick getaway. We even collected some half bottles, rather rare these days

We'd had a couple of grungy experiences buying wine in Calais warehouses and supermarkets so this time we tried Boursot's in Ardres. What a relief! We found a very good selection of wines of all prices, unpretentiously presented by the owner, Guy Boursot (British, never mind the name), whose family, I believe, has been selling French wine in England for centuries. Man knows his stuff. If you like, you can send wine from other parts of Europe to him and, for a small fee per box, he'll hang onto it for you till you can collect it. Great place.

We have been visiting Guy's shop for several years now, & simply would not dream of buying our wine anywhere else. A range of wines & prices, with tastings if you do not know the wine, make this an easy & charming place to buy. There is always advice from Guy, the owner, or Jean Bertrand, his assistant, which makes the choice fun. My husband tends to go for the lower priced reds, with a few better ones thrown in, whilst I love the classy whites & cheap champagne. As our son would say, 'What is not to like?'

We went to Boursot's for the first time today from Leatherhead, Surrey. It was a great day out and we heard so much about Boursot's and we were not disappointed. The owner, Guy, couldn't be more helpful and we tasted many wines before our purchase. We definitely will make this trip again, but not for a while because of the quantities we brought back from us! Yum! We also ate across the street and had a delightful meal. Restaurant Le Francais 1er. FINE day out. It doesn't take long to get a totally nice day out in France..... Fab.
