Château Dauzac in Bordeaux to get new owner

It emerged in December 2018 that Christian Roulleau was in negotiations to buy Château Dauzac, based in the Margaux appellation and a fifth growth in the 1855 Classification.

Château Dauzac in Bordeaux to get new owner

A source familiar with the situation said that a deal has subsequently been agreed, although there has not been official confirmation. It is thought the deal could be worth around €120 million.

Roulleau is co-founder of SAMSIC, one of Europe’s leading business services firms, based in Rennes. He and his family had a fortune of €700 million in 2018, according to French business publication Challenges.

Dauzac’s current CEO, Laurent Fortin, would not comment on takeover talks but told Decanter.com this month that he expected to remain in position. ‘I am totally in-line with the strategy of the new acquirer,’ said Fortin. ‘I am delighted and honoured to continue to write the beautiful story of Château Dauzac.’

With a surface area of 120 hectares, including 49 hectares of vines in the Margaux appellation and two in the Haut-Médoc AOC, Dauzac has undergone a transformation under Fortin’s direction; backed by MAIF investment.

In particular, there has been a shift to biodynamic principles and increased focus on the best vineyard sites.

The estate produces about 300,000 bottles per year on average, including 120,000 of Château Dauzac ‘first wine’, 100,000 of Aurore de Dauzac, nearly 60,000 of Bastide de Dauzac and 20,000 of Haut-Médoc appellation wines.

The estate also has the D de Dauzac brand, marketed by Dauzac-owned Delta Négoce, which sells nearly 350,000 bottles per year.

In the last two years, other rumoured suitors for Château Dauzac have included Chinese billionaire Jack Ma and also the Cathiard family, of Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte.

The pearl of the auction was a fine wine from France, Bordeaux, left Bank-Chateau Margaux harvest in 1996.

The wine maps making waves in Bordeaux.

Bordeaux specialist Pierre Le Hong makes a name for himself in the region by producing detailed, digital maps of prized vineyards. Most of them start out with a bird’s eye view high above Europe, closing in first on France, then on Bordeaux, then on whichever appellation is in the spotlight.

The different vineyard plots are detailed, usually with their soil type and grape plantings in different colours and shown from a variety of angles that make clear that the Médoc isn’t nearly so flat as is usually believed.

Bordeaux winemaking at the classes of professional sommelier’s course.

Even the word "Bordeaux" has something noble in its phonetics. It is here that such a powerful, courageous and energetic variety as Cabernet Sauvignon feels great, and, as if rejoicing and filling with the energy of the local terroir gives all the blame, showing its best qualities! This blessed land is considered to be the birthplace of the best wines in the world!

Château Giscours denies breaking chaptalisation rules.

Château Giscours in Bordeaux has strongly denied any suggestion that it purposefully broke rules on chaptalisation of wine after learning that French authorities intend to prosecute the estate.

Château Giscours denies breaking chaptalisation rules.

Château Giscours is facing a court case, likely to be in June, over the alleged illegal chaptalisation of some of its wine from the Bordeaux 2016 vintage.

French authorities have accused Giscours, based in the Margaux appellation, of knowingly chaptalising Merlot wine against the rules.

Chaptalisation, a method of adding sucrose to grape juice that can then boost alcohol levels in wine, was allowed for all grape varieties except Merlot across several Bordeaux appellations in the 2016 vintage.

Giscours said that, while it did begin chaptalisation on a vat of 2016 wine containing 20% Merlot and 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, it did so in good faith; having received what it believed to be written clearance to do so from Margaux wine body, the Syndicat de l’appellation Margaux.

‘There was no intention at all to try to do anything against the regulations,’ Alexander Van Beek, director general of Giscours, told Decanter.com. The case did not concern the Giscours 2016 first wine, he said.

He said that Giscours and many other estates had applied to chaptalise some of the juice from the 2016 vintage.

An initial email from the Margaux appellation body to Giscours on 10 October 2016 said that chaptalisation at up to 1% of abv would be fine, according to the estate. But, a second email later the same day clarified that Merlot should not be chaptalised.

A letter to Giscours from the Margaux appellation body, dated 1 February 2018, confirmed that its first email on 10 October 2016 didn’t include the detail about Merlot.

‘We have all of the documents to prove our innocence,’ Van Beek said, adding that the whole issue had been a ‘communication mistake’. Part of the problem, he added, was the ‘complicated system’.

Requests for chaptalisation have to be passed up to France’s appellation body, the INAO, but final clearance must be given by the regional government; in this case the ‘Préfet’ in Bordeaux.

Faced with time pressure in the cellar, this can cause headaches, said Van Beek.

Bordeaux’s Préfet did not officially endorse chaptalisation on 2016 vintage wines excluding Merlot until 11 October 2016, and this was signed off by INAO a day later, according to the letter to Giscours from Margaux’s appellation body.

But the Margaux appellation body was understood to have emailed winemakers two days earlier, after receiving reassurances from INAO.

Auction highlights: the most expensive wine lots of 2017

Can you guess which bottles ranked as some of 2017’s highest selling fine wines at auction? Sotheby’s and Christie’s auction houses reveal their top wine lots of the year… Last year Christie’s auction house held 16 live wine auctions all over the world, including London, New York, Hong Kong, Paris and Geneva.

UK Christie’s auctions

Christie’s highest-selling lot was a 12-bottle case of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s Romanée-Conti 1988, sold in London’s September ‘Fine and Rare Wines’ auction for £198,000.

In second place was the coveted Château Cheval-Blanc 1947, a 12-bottle case sold for £168,000 in the December ‘Finest and Rarest’ London auction.

Eight out of Christie’s top 10 wine lots were from Burgundy, dominated by Domaine de la Romance-Conti (DRC) wines: three lots of Romanée-Conti 1988, one of Romanée-Conti 1991 and La Tâche 1996.

A single bottle of Château Lafite-Rothschild 1806 made seventh place on the list, it was sold for £45,600 at London’s December auction.

US and Asia Christie’s auctions

The top selling wine from Christie’s New York sales was DRC’s Montrachet 1990 (12 bottles), sold for US$104,125.

Other US highlights included three bottles of DRC’s Romanée-Conti 1990, which reached a price of $98,000.

Twelve bottles of Petrus 1947 sold for $49,000, and three bottles of 1975 ‘Black Seal’ Madeira, sold for $46,550.

Château Cheval-Blanc 1947 was the highest selling lot among Christie’s Hong Kong auctions; its May auction saw a case of 12 sell for 1,592,500 HKD (US $203,740).

Sotheby’s top wines of 2017

Sotheby’s auction house hosted around 21 wine sales in London, New York and Hong Kong in 2017, reaching a grand sales total of over $64 million.

Towards the close of 2017 its ‘A Life of Luxury’ auction in New York made headlines for hitting over $2.6m in sales.

The lead consignment entitled ‘DRC Spanning Four Decades, Rousseau in Historic Vintages and Top-Flight Bordeaux’ sold 78 lots for an eye-watering $619,244. The top lot was Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Romanee Conti 2013, which sold for $55,350 , above the estimate of $30,000-40,000. 

Two lots from the April Hong Kong sale: Vosne Romanée, Cros Parantoux 1990 Henri Jayer (12 bottles) and Hermitage, La Chapelle 1961 Paul Jaboulet Aîné (12 bottles). The respective upper estimates for the lots were 1.4 million HKD and 1 million HKD, and both sold for for 1.2 million HKD each (US $157,051). 

In New York’s ‘Finest and Rarest’ October sale, the top lot was a case of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée Conti 1996 (6 bottles), selling for $134,750 (est. $60,000-$90,000).

Although the year’s leading lots were vastly dominated by Burgundian cult wines, California earned a spot in the auction highlights with a ‘Vertical’ 43-bottle consignment of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon — the highest-selling wine lot at the September Hong Kong sale, hitting 1,163,750 HKD (US $149,007).

All of the specialist highlights were purchased by private buyers from Asia.

Plans begin to rebuild Signorello

The owners of Signorello Estate in Napa Valley have started plans for rebuilding after the winery was destroyed in the California fires in September. 

Ray Signorello Jr has hired Taylor Lombardo Architects and Nordby Construction Company to design and rebuild the estate.

‘After a great deal of research, I am thrilled to align Signorello Estate with these two local, award-winning firms,’ said Ray Signorello Jr.

Both companies have worked on other Napa wineries, including Silver Oak and Inglenook respectively.

The new design will be an open, modern structure taking advantage of the site and location of Signorello. New features include ‘cave facilities’; an estimated 8000 sq ft space for ageing wines, along side hospitality space.

The new winery will also include a professional kitchen, allowing for extensive food and wine pairings as part of the visitor experience.

‘The world saw Signorello Estate as the face of the Napa Valley fire,’ said Tom Taylor and Maurice Lombardo, partners of Taylor Lombardo Architects.

‘Soon they will see it as a leading symbol of this region’s comeback.’

‘We can move Signorello Estate beyond our recent setbacks and towards a brighter future,’ said Signorello.
