Moutai and Camus announced that the French company will distribute Chateau Loudenne, Rives de Loudenne and Chateau Loudenne-Bordeaux globally, with the exception of Japan, Dubai, Singapore the US, the UK & China.

The two firms have worked together on distribution of other brands for the last ten years.

“It is an honour to represent one of the most renowned fine wine brands worldwide and it is a major step in our partnership with Moutai” said Camus' global commercial director, Anne Blois.
