Spayne Lindsay & Co. advises the Rémy Cointreau Group on the acquisition of the Champagne de Telmont company.
Rémy Cointreau has announced that it had entered exclusive negotiations with the Lhopital family to acquire a majority stake in the capital of the Champagne de Telmont company, which was founded in 1912 in Damery (Marne Valley).
It has been crafting champagnes under the brand “J. de Telmont” for over a century. This Maison is one of the last family-owned estates in Champagne: Mrs Pascale Lhopital and Mr Bertrand Lhopital represent the fourth generation of true master craftmen in the art of champagne.
Mr Bertrand Lhopital, alongside the Rémy Cointreau Group, will continue working with his team on the upstream side (vineyard/sourcing) and on the champagne production side to perpetuate the estate’s know-how and family tradition.
The scope of the acquisition deal includes the brands, stocks, production resources and real estate assets of the domain, as well as vineyards in Champagne.
This acquisition would enrich Rémy Cointreau’s portfolio of exceptional wines and spirits with a high-end champagne brand that offers significant growth potential overtime, especially on the international market.
The parties have agreed not to disclose the terms of the transaction.
