Joachin BONNEVAL and Paul PEUCH began distributing Bordeaux Grands Crus in 1904. Albert PEUCH took over from them in 1949 and stepped up the pace of trade. He went into partnership with his brother-in-law, Pierre Besse, and renamed the trading company « Peuch & Besse ». Deeply attached to the terroir and passionate about wine, he acquired Château Gravet-Renaissance Saint-Emilion Grand Cru in 1978.
Nowadays, Isabelle GEC PEUCH and Sylvain COMBE continue the grass-roots contact so dear to their hearts and have been developing one new area of trade over the past few years: Travel Retail. They are operating in the Travel Retail industry since 2004 and prestigious companies such as the Lagardère group place their trust in them and enable them to ply their trade in airports all over the world. Joined by international rugby player Olivier Magne in 2011, they strive to pass on and share the same values embodied by rugby.
Backed by a dynamic team, Isabelle and Sylvain exclusively represent award winning family wine estates across France, who are constantly aiming for perfection and who produce wines of the highest quality, a consistent expression of their varietal and region, outperforming their price points.
Isabelle and Sylvain
I am a nurseryman, meaning I create vine stocks and sell them to other winegrowers so that they can use them in their vineyard, that’s the very first step. It’s also the story of an union between Merlot, the grape variety, and the terroir, the clay-limestone soil of the Saint-Émilion region, which gives us a very intense,deeply coloured wine with a silky, elegant, almost creamy taste.
Based on our experience as winegrower of Château Gravet-Renaissance Grand Cru in St Emilion, Bordeaux, we carefully select wines from parcels adjacent to the most prestigious vineyards.
We exclusively represent carefully selected family wine estates across France, who are constantly aiming for perfection and are able to capture all the intensity of their terroir. Our involvement and support to the winemakers allow us to offer wines of outstanding quality which are a true reflection of their appellation.
We share the same values as rugby: solidarity, team spirit, conviviality, respect and sharing.We have supported CA Brive Corrèze since 2009 and contribute to the club's dynamism, particularly through tastings offered to the many partners and by our active support in the stands during matches!We have been the official supplier of the Tournoi des 6 Stations since its creation in 2013, to which the greatest former international rugby players are invited, in particular Olivier Magne, and we cover this event in six Alpine resorts.
