Thiénot Bordeaux-Champagne has appointed ex-Majestic buyer, Nick Dagley as its new commercial director for the UK and Ireland.

Dagley said: "As a buyer, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Thiénot Bordeaux-Champagne. It is a modern, forward-thinking company with a great team spirit, and with its sights on the future. 

"As a producer and négociant, the company has a 360-degree view of the market. 

The focus is on quality, demonstrating the value that Bordeaux can provide.

"I hope to build on the excellent work Sarah has done over the past 18 years."
