In a financial press release, “the Rémy Cointreau Group announces that it is in exclusive negotiations with the Lhopital family to acquire a majority stake in the capital of Champagne de Telmont”. Due to be approved at the start of 2021, the acquisition covers around thirty hectares of vineyards, the winery, stocks and all the brands.

A family-run business since it was founded in 1912, J. de Telmont Champagnes are managed by Pascale Lhopital and Bertrand Lhopital. Based in Damery (Marne), the company’s fourth-generation representatives have begun to switch their supplies over to organic (one third of volumes are certified or in the conversion phase). Under its motto attributed to King Louis XIV (Nec pluribus impar, Unlike no other), J. de Telmont Champagne claims to be one of the twenty largest Champagne houses.

Through this acquisition, Rémy Cointreau would enrich its portfolio of exceptional wines and spirits with a high-end Champagne brand”, said a press statement issued by the group. Rémy Cointreau markets liqueurs and spirits (in Cognac with Rémy Martin and more recently JR Brillet) and is returning to Champagne after a ten-year absence. After buying Charles Heidsieck and Piper Heidsieck Champagnes in 1985 and 1988, the group then sold them to EPI in 2011.
