This large wine company, based in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges (Côte de Nuits), was founded in 1961 by Jean-Claude Boisset (*1943). In 1982, the two trading houses Charles Vienot and Thomas Bassot were bought, thus taking over the two biggest competitors. In 1985, the company went public and subsequently took over numerous companies and wineries. However, in 2003 it was again taken over 100% by the Boisset family. Today it is the largest wine trading house in Burgundy and is also one of the three largest wine and spirits companies in France. Among the owners in many wine regions are Caroline de Beaulieu (Languedoc), Bouchard-Aîné, Thomas Bassot, Domaine Bernard (Rhône), L'Héritier-Guyot, Lionel Bruck, Chauvenet, Delaunay, Charles de Fére, Jaffelin, Mommessin (Beaujolais), Moreau (Chablis), Morin Père et Fils, Marcilly, Pierre Ponnelle, Ropiteau, Cellier de Samons (Beaujolais), Varichon et Clerk and Viénot
