A new managing director for Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild

Boris Bréau has taken over management of the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild (CVBER) from Georges Alnot from Champagne who had held the position for 10 years. For the past two years, Boris Bréau had been running the South-West branch of Advini, comprising Antoine Moueix in Saint-Emilion and Rigal in Cahors. Prior to that, he had managed the export department of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild group – Château Mouton Rothschild and the Mouton Cadet brand.

CVBER currently produces 3 million bottles a year. Founded by banker Edmond de Rothschild, the wine subsidiary was established with the purchase of Châteaux Clarke (Listrac-Médoc) and Malmaison (Moulis) in 1973, followed by Peyre-Lebade in 1979 (Moulis and Haut-Médoc). After taking over the reins from his father, Benjamin de Rothschild added Château des Laurets to the portfolio in 2003 (Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion), along with investments in South Africa via Rupert & Rothschild in 1997 (in partnership with the Rupert family), Argentina via Flechas de los Andes in 1999 (in partnership with Laurent Dassault), Spain in 2000 with Macan (in partnership with Vega Sicilia in Rioja) and New Zealand, with Rimapere in 2012 (in partnership with Craggy Range in Marlborough).

Another noteworthy fact is that CVBER has a partnership with BPR and Domaines Baron de Rothschild (Châteaux Lafite Rothschild, l’Evangile, Rieussec…) via the Champagne house Barons de Rothschild.
