By December 22, 2017Top News

Craft + Estate, a member of The Winebow Group, was named exclusive U.S. importer of Leclerc Briant, the pioneering Champagne house in Épernay. Established in 1872 by Lucien Leclerc, the winery began in Cumières and then moved to Épernay in 1955, when Leclerc married Jacqueline Briant and formed the négociant firm. Leclerc Briant was an early adopter of organic practices in the 1960s and one of the first to bottle single-vineyard Champagnes in the 1970s among its history to current production highlights. Craft + Estate will import Leclerc Briant’s Brut Réserve, Brut Rosé, Extra Brut Millésime, La Croisette Brut, and Blanc de Meuniers Premier Cru Brut Zéro. Meanwhile, MundoVino, also a member of The Winebow Group, announced its deal as exclusive U.S. importer of the wines of Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle, a pioneering producer that marries its French heritage with the terroir of Chile. MundoVino will import Lapostolle Le Rouge, Le Rosé, Grand Selection, Cuvée Alexandre, Collection, Borobo, Clos Apalta and Le Petit Clos. It will also import Kappa Pisco and Lapostolle Pisco.
