Icon Fine Wine & Spirits Adds the Grand Marnier Familys Chateau De Sancerre and Casa Lapostolle to Its Portfolio

Both estates are owned by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, of the world-renowned house of Grand Marnier, and her husband Cyril de Bournet. The couple choose Icon Fine Wine & Spirits as their new partner agency to steward their brands in the prairies and western provinces of Canada because of Icon’s boutique approach and expertise in connecting its partner wineries with wine loving consumers. Icon took over the brands from Diageo Canada Inc. on December 1.

Chteau de Sancerre, is an iconic estate in the beautiful Loire Valley of France. The region is world renowned for its pure and lively Sauvignon Blanc. Chteau de Sancerre is a leading producer and offers elegant wines of exceptional value which can be found on wine lists of leading restaurants around the world.

Casa Lapostolle was founded in 1994 with the mission to create world-class wines using French expertise and the superb terroir of Chile. The winery adopted the tagline: “French in Essence. Chilean by Birth” which is embodied in every aspect of their wines.

In creating Lapostolle, the family pursued the same uncompromising approach to quality that has made Grand Marnier a global success. Today, Casa Lapostolle owns 370 hectares in three different vineyards and produces a total of 200,000 cases. The family has made significant investments into the vineyards and grows Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenre, and Syrah under the most sustainable farming practices.
