Wine News: Bollinger Group acquires Sancerre estate Hubert Brochard

The Bollinger Group, in addition to five other estates in France and the US, has recently acquired the Sancerre historic estate, Hubert Brochard.

The acquisition aligns with the Bollinger Group’s strategy to offer its customers and consumers a portfolio of top-quality wines and spirits.

The estate is comprised of 60ha of vineyards spread over the premier hills in the Sancerre appellation, which includes the villages of Chavignol, Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre, Thauvenay, Sainte-Gemme and Sancerre, as well as vineyards in Pouilly-Fumé.

Etienne Bizot, president and CEO states: “The Bollinger Group has 50 years of history in the Loire region where it acquired Maison Langlois Chateau in 1973. We have already made investments in the region, in the vineyards, the wine making process and in the distribution of its fine wines.” and

“The acquisition of Hubert Brochard estate represents an opportunity to consolidate our footprint in this region and to continue to promote, in France and internationally, its savoir-faire and the quality of its wines.”

The estate sits in a region renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc, comprising 60 hectares of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, farmed with a respect for the environment.

Daniel Brochard, president of Hubert Borchard Estate, added: “The hand-over to our partner Bollinger Group will ensure the continuity of this journey fueled by the same values of entrepreneurship, family spirit, and obsession for quality.”

The Bollinger Group also owns Champagne Bollinger and Champagne Ayala, and the group also controls an increasingly diverse portfolio of wines and spirits, including Delamain Cognac and Ponzi Vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
