Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte and De Castelnau plan to merge their companies

The crisis in Champagne is giving birth to a new company: the Centre vinicole - Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte (CV-CNF) in Chouilly is the largest cooperative in Champagne, bringing together 84 cooperatives representing more than 5,000 winemakers. The brand dates back to Nicolas Feuillatte, who launched it in 1976 after inheriting a vineyard near Reims. In 1986, the Centre Vinicole de la Champagne took over the brand.

Now a merger of Centre vinicole - Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte (CV-CNF) with the Reims cooperative De Castelnou is planned. Founded in 1962, more than 600 winemakers with over 800 hectares of vines are now affiliated with this organization.

A general meeting is already planned for June 2021. Then the merger agreement is to be ratified. This new conglomerate will include over 6,000 winemakers.  The combined turnover of the two cooperatives (€212 million for Nicolas Feuillatte, €54 million for CRVC in 2019) should result in the new company becoming the second largest Champagne producer after LVMH (€53.7 billion).
