Nicolas Feuillatte buys Champagne Henri Abelé

Champagne’s largest cooperative Nicolas Feuillatte is getting even bigger. Feuillatte recently bought the champagne brand Henri Abelé, which, since 1985, has been owned by the huge Spanish cava producer Freixenet.

Henri Abelé sells around 300,000 bottles annually. The house has beautiful cellars in Reims. It does not own any vineyards. Instead, it has long-term contracts with a number of grape growers, mainly in Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.

Nicolas Feuillatte produces around 10 million bottles of champagne a year, making the cooperative the third largest champagne producer after Moët & Chandon and Veuve Clicquot. But Feuillatte is the biggest one on the French market.
