Moueix buys share in Belair

>> Friday, March 02, 2007

050527-204-0405The Moueix family has acquired 31% of Château Belair. Moueix is best known for being the owner of Château Petrus. Chateau Belair is owned by Pascal Delbeck, a very ambitious winemaker who at a very tender age became “famous” for being appointed responsible for Chateau Ausone, one of the two top properties in the whole of Saint Emilion. Delbeck sells a minority share in Belair in order not to loose it entirely due to French inheritance taxes. Belair has, since Delbeck’s arrival after having left Ausone, become one of Saint Emilion’s best chateaux.
