BEJOT vins & terroirs purchases Corton André
After being owned by the André family and its descendants, Corton André was purchased in 2002 by the Ballande Group.
Corton-André is located in the iconic Château of Corton André, at the foot of the hill of the Cortons.
This beautiful “Maison” produces wines of Burgundy and the Beaujolais, relying in particular on its 7 hectares of vineyards located in Corton, Volnay, Meursault, Pommard… Corton André controls and also makes wine from more than 150 hectares in Burgundy from Chablis to Pouilly-Fuissé, representing 90 appellations.
Corton André has two historic signatures, traded on separate distribution networks throughout the world:
– Pierre André, for the traditional market
– La Reine Pédauque, for mass distribution
This is the result of a great story that already unites BEJOT vins & terroirs and Corton since Vincent SAUVESTRE CEO of BEJOT vins & terroirs, already operates several acres of the prestigious Grands Crus of the famous hill (Corton-Charlemagne, Corton Les Grandes Lolières, Corton Les Maréchaudes), and owns the Bois de Corton, which is the crown.
Operating in a highly competitive environment, Corton André will be able to rely on the know-how of the group BEJOT vins & terroirs in terms of quality. Benefiting from modern tools and efficient facilities of the group, Corton André wines will meet international quality standards IFS and BRC from the 2014 harvest.
BEJOT Vins & terroirs will in turn strengthen its strategic position in its various markets, in France and abroad:
– With Reine Pedauque, Moillard will consolidate its leading position in France in supermarkets with the wines of Burgundy.
– As for the brand Pierre André, it will allow BEJOT vins & terroirs to expand its offer for Selective networks, especially for export, alongside its brand Chartron et Trebuchet.
“These prestigious signatures fit perfectly into our developing internal and external strategy” mentions Vincent Sauvestre.
