Wilson Daniels said it added Domaine Les Monts Fournois, an exciting new project in Champagne from winemaker Juliette Alips, and Domaine du Nozay, a biodynamic leader in the Loire Valley producing terroir-driven Sancerre expressions, to its national import portfolio. These key portfolio additions reinforce Wilson Daniels' commitment to representing family-run domaines that are the quality pinnacle in their respective regions, while further strengthening its French portfolio, the company said.
"Our French portfolio is quite extensive, and we've been privileged to represent some of the world's most lauded domaines for 44 years, starting with our longest-standing winery partner Domaine de la Romanée-Conti," said Rocco Lombardo, president of Wilson Daniels.
"With increasing demand from customers and collectors for both grower Champagne and Sancerre, we are delighted to be partnering with Domaine Les Monts Fournois and Domaine du Nozay in these key segments. Owned by the Bérèche and de Benoist families, respectively, each domaine exhibits the characteristics that Wilson Daniels is most known for: families who implement their deep winemaking knowledge and heritage to produce the finest wines from their terroir."
This spring, Wilson Daniels will also introduce Domaine du Nozay and its six unique Sancerre expressions. Founded in 1970 by Baron Philippe de Benoist and his wife Marie-Hélène, Le Nozay is a small 17th century castle surrounded by fifteen acres of Sauvignon Blanc planted in the Terres Blanches, the famous Kimmeridgian marl that is characteristic of this region. The estate has been certified organic since 2011 and biodynamic since 2017, and today is one of the few producers implementing sonic stimulation in the vineyards.
