Berkmann Wine Cellars secures UK distribution for Champagne Jacquesson
Berkmann Wine Cellars is thrilled to announce the addition of Champagne Jacquesson to its agency portfolio.
Taking over the UK distribution from Fields, Morris & Verdin (FMV) with immediate effect, Berkmann will be launching Jacquesson’s Cuvée 743, based on the outstanding 2015 vintage, as well as the 2010-based Cuvée 738 D.T. and three single-vineyard wines from 2009.
These wines will sit alongside Champagne Drappier in Berkmann’s portfolio, further underlining the importer’s dedication to family-run, quality-orientated champagne houses.
Alex Hunt MW, purchasing director at Berkmann, commented “having worked with Jacquesson around the time they launched their revolutionary numbered cuvées in 2003, I experienced first-hand the extraordinary dedication and attention to detail they applied both to the winemaking process itself, and to the underlying thought that guides it. A decade and a half of fine-tuning later, Jacquesson’s joining Berkmann is a long-held dream come true. We are all relishing the prospect of building on the good work done by FMV over that time.”
Jean-Hervé Chiquet, co-proprietor of Champagne Jacquesson, said: “We are very pleased indeed that we are going to be represented by Berkmann Wine Cellars in the UK. Like us, a family-owned company, they share our passion for quality in all things that we do. We look forward very much to working with the Berkmann team and, together with them, taking Jacquesson to even greater heights over the years to come. And we would like to thank FMV for all their work on our behalf over the past 14 years.”
