About our Champagne & Wine Partners


Vranken Pommery

Pommery Brut Royal NV is blended from equal amounts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Menuier.

It has a ale yellow colourwith faint green highlights. On the nose it is fresh, light-hearted, and fine with notes of citrus fruit and white flower combined with small red fruits. Elegant and lively, Pommery Brut Royal NV is a rounded, rich, but delicate wine that lingers in the mouth. In short, a clean taste with no dryness. A very smooth wine which never wanes on the palate.



Les Vins du Médoc

To understand the Médoc, you have to unravel 3 secrets.

Three mysteries which, once solved, throw some light on what lies behind the Médoc vineyards, the half-hidden face of which does not easily reveal the essence of its existence.

With patience, the skies will clear, the soil will talk and you will finally come to understand why this wine-making region is, without doubt, one of the most prestigious in the world.

Les Vins de Pessac-Léognan

Rigorously selected and controlled by the I.N.A.O, the current production is of the order of 75000 hls with more than 1700 hectares of production or some 10 million bottles (80% Red and 20% dry White). Of this about 20% is exported.

The new A.O.C Pessac-Léognan was born in September 1987 in the very old region of the Graves de Bordeaux, formerly the Banlieue Prévôtale (Provostal Suburb).

Cradle of the Bordeaux vineyards, the A.O.C Pessac-Léognan includes 74 Châteaux and Domains split between 10 communes. All located on this exceptional soil, 16 of them, of which the famous Château Haut-Brion, are Classified Vintages of the Graves.
