Champagne Lanson to distribute Domaine de Cala in UK

Champagne Lanson has announced an exclusive new agency for the UK – Provence wine estate Domaine de Cala.

The domaine, which consists of some 600 acres with 125 acres of vines in Brignoles, has entrusted Lanson to distribute two of its key brands: Domaine de Cala Prestige and Classic rosés in the UK

The prestige bottling will be sold for a RRP of £24.99, while the classic version comes in at £16.99.

According to a statement released by the house, the prestige rosé is aged for four months in new French oak, while rosé Domaine de Cala Classic is described as having “the distinct expression of Provence, but with a subtle sweet, fruity finish.”

Domaine de Cala was purchased in 2015 by Joachim Splichal, chef & founder of the Patina Restaurant Group in Los Angeles. He has since employed the services of leading Bordeaux consultant Stephane Derenoncourt, and Provence resident and rosé specialist Bruno Tringali.

“Finding the right UK agent who is capable of opening up new routes to market to raise awareness of our Rosé Domaine de Cala Prestige and Rosé Domaine de Cala Classic wines is key to our strategy for 2019 and beyond,” said Splichal.

Paul Beavis, managing director of Champagne Lanson, added: “With our vast experience in the on-premise and off trade; as well as the learnings over the years with our very popular Lanson Rosé Label Brut Rose, we have a number of opportunities for these quality Rose Domaine de CALA Prestige and Rosé Domaine de CALA Classic products.”

“Working with such an outstanding chef like Joachim who has an innate understanding of wines and a  dedication to quality, chimes with our ongoing commitment to having a selected range of premium wines to complement the quality of our outstanding Lanson portfolio.”
