Interview of Ms.Ludivine Cécillon – Asia Manager – Jaillance for AsiaImportNews – Exclusive
Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?
Jaillance was created in the 1950’s under the leadership of Henri Bonnet, who gathered a group of winegrowers who agreed to work on a cooperative basis, seeing this as a way of developing their production and commercialization. In 2001, Jaillance brand saw the light of day. Branding allowed the cooperative to develop the scope of its influence and become a recognised expert and reference in French sparkling wines. Armed with a new name, Jaillance also announced their intention to extend the range of sparkling wines they offered. In the same year, they acquired Brouette Petit-Fils, a company based in Bordeaux thus becoming the leading producer of Crémant de Bordeaux, both white and rosé. And so a new sparkling AOC wine specialist was born.
Jaillance is today France’s leading producer and the number 1 AOC Sparkling Wine Brand in France.
Located in the heart of France renowned production regions of Bordeaux and Rhone Valley, Jaillance produces unique quality sparkling wines: Clairette de Die, Cremant de Die and Cremant de Bordeaux.

How important are your export distribution compared to national distribution ?
15% of our production is exported to over 20 countries.
What sort of distributors are your customers ?

Why your wines are different from other wineries in your area ?
Our difference and expertise lies in the production of terroirs wines, as we specialized in producing French AOC sparkling wines from France renowned regions. Our signature of excellence is a token of our engagement to guarantee constant quality to our customers.
Do you produce grapes in a organic or environmental friendly method, or with general methods ?
As a real pioneer, Jaillance started with Organic Farming in 1989. So as to last in time, to respect the heritage and out of love for their land, the Jaillance winemakers commit themselves to respect nature and preserve diversity. In concrete terms, this means that, amongst other things, they use organic compost or enrichment maters on the vines. To date, almost 15% of the vineyard (that is to say 128 hectares), is organic (against 3,1% on a nationwide average). To do so, the winery has set up a process of a « sensible farming Method » on the rest of the vineyards, via an internal charter based on the ISO 14001 standards and on the reference book of sensible farming.
In 2006, Jaillance opts for a comprehensive approach to respect the environment and is certified ISO 14001. This is materialized by a reduction of 25% in water consumption and the management of 90% of sorted waste. Saving energy is at the heart of the Cave’s strategy and in 2011 Jaillance decides to set up solar panels. Thanks to 12 000 metre square of solar panels, the company produces 50% of its needs. Cellar buildings (4 000 m2) and individual buldings of winemakers (8 000 m2), this investment aims at satisfying the modern expectations of the consumer : in search of quality products at affordable prices made by companies that respect the environment.
Are your wines already distributed in Asia, and if not what are the countries you are looking for new distributors ?
Part of our wines are distributed in Asia, meanwhile we are constantly looking for new distributors in countries like China, South Korea and of South East Asia.
