Sharing and conviviality are at the heart of Maison Soulat, created by Jacques Soulat in 2010. Originally from Libourne, and established in the Charente since 2002, Jacques Soulat's activity revolves around precious moments of camaraderie. Driven by his passion for wine and human contact, this “Taste Explorer" likes to visit the estates he represents, exchange with their winemakers and share his discoveries with the customers of his two shops in Angoulême and Saint-Sornin.
THE CHARENTAIS TERROIR, OUR PASSION
A fervent ambassador of the Charentais terroir, Jacques Soulat places local wines and spirits at the heart of the offer at his two shops: Jean Fillioux (Cognac, in Juillac-le-Coq), Bastille (Whisky, Maison Daucourt), G'Vine (Gins, Maison Villevert in Merpins), L'Élixir de la Dame (Vermouths, Maison Dâme in Saint-Brice), Maverlan and Vignoble Chapt for the wines, are some of the brands represented.
In 2018, Maison Soulat took over the Saint-Sornin winery, which was ravaged by hail a few months prior. In association with Olivier Pucek (Maverlan wines in Miaulant), he is undertaking the restructuration of the historic vineyard of Saint-Sornin, in order to produce high quality "IGP Vins Charentais - Saint-Sornin" wines (the first Sapiens cuvée was released in 2019), while respecting an environmentally friendly approach. It also contributes to the development of the spirits of the "Spirits Valley" (the alliance of the professionals of the sector of the spirits of excellence of the Valley of the Charente) by highlighting them on its site.
Maison Soulat is also a partner of major cultural events in Charente: the Angoulême Film Festival, the Circuit des Remparts, the Gastronomades,... as well as the main sports clubs in Charente.
MAISON SOULAT, YOUR SPECIALIST IN PRESTIGIOUS BORDEAUX WINES
For more than twenty years, Jacques Soulat has been a négociant buying wine on the Place de Bordeaux. As such, Maison Soulat has access to the vast majority of the Bordeaux Crus. Most of them come directly from the chateaux and are kept in our cellars at optimal temperature. We offer great older vintages and, every spring, the Bordeaux wines “en primeurs”, or wine futures.
A VINTAGE AMBASSADOR, MAURICE
You may have met him on the roads of Charente? 60 years old and still as dashing as ever, Maurice is the nomadic wine bar of Maison Soulat. A piece of French heritage, "Maurice" awakens memories and attracts sympathy. He is the darling of all parties.
