Allegrini becomes Italian distributor of the wines of the prestigious Domaine Henri Rebourseau
Following on from Olivier Leflaive in 2018 and Thibault Liger-Belair in 2020, Allegrini has returned to Burgundy and signed a new distribution agreement, this time with the Domaine Henri Rebourseau, one of the most important producers on the Côte de Nuits.
“We are very proud to add Domaine Henri Rebourseau to our small but prestigious Burgundy portfolio: a historic and important company that owns the oldest parcels located between the villages of Gevrey-Chambertin and Vougeot,” said Marilisa Allegrini, CEO of Allegrini.
Louis de Surrel, commercial director and sixth generation at the helm of the winery, echoes her sentiments: “Domaine Rebourseau is delighted to collaborate with Allegrini Estates for the exclusive distribution of its wines in Italy. We are excited to share common values with a family driven by the same passion for good wine.”
Deep is the thread that binds the two companies: they both champion a long-standing wine tradition (the Domaine Henri Rebourseau was founded in 1792) in their respective winegrowing districts as well as a vision of an authentic family business handed down over time.
The history of Domaine Henri Rebourseau
Domaine Henri Rebourseau cherishes and safeguards a legacy of exceptional vines planted on land cultivated for over 1,400 years. In the heart of the Côte de Nuits, the maison has the oldest land parcels situated between the villages of Gevrey-Chambertin and Vougeot. The vineyard covers 13.6 hectares cultivated with Pinot Noir divided into different Grand Cru appellations (Clos de Beze, Chambertin, Mazy-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot), Premier Cru (Gevrey Chambertin La Perrière and Fonteny) and two Village appellations (Gevrey-Chambertin in Corvées and la Brunelle).
In December 2018, a second family, the Bouygues family, joined the property. As majority shareholders, brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues work with Jean de Surrel to continue what Pierre had previously built up. Thanks to the Bouygues family, the property still retains its family dimension while preserving the integrity of its viticultural heritage and the traditions carried forward by several generations.
