Jean-Claude Boisset , the Nuits-St-Georges-based Burgundy house has restructured its UK arrangements in an attempt to further develop its business in the off-trade by appointing D and D wines International as a key partner for this channel.

D and D have long been associated with Boisset and the partnership has been expanded by the addition of several houses in the Boisset stable to the off-trade portfolio of D and D.

In addition to the Jean -Claude Boisset and the Moreau range, the houses of Delaunay, Honoré Lavigne and Thomas Bassot, from the Cote D'Or are included. In the Beaujolais, Pellerin -Mignot, joins Cellier des Samson.

Commenting on the new arrangements David Garlick managing director of D and D wines said: "With this comprehensive range , we can offer a complete service from Eastern France, thus helping key retailers approach these categories from one point of contact. We will be announcing further additions to this range very shortly."

Darryll Puddy, Boissets' UK off-trade director said: "We have a complementary mix of houses within Boisset, 'La Famille des Grands Vins' and this consolidation will allow us to tailor make the needs of each client with a range of Brands and exclusive labels.
