ANOTHER ESTATE HAS BEEN BOUGHT IN FRANCE’S TOP WINE REGION. FOLLOWING TROPLONG MONDOT (SCOR GROUP), CHATEAU PHELAN-SÉGUR (VAN DE VYVERE) AND CHATEAU FAUCHEY (PROFITSUN HOLDINGS), CHANEL IS OFFICIALLY THE NEW OWNER OF CHATEAU BERLIQUET SAINT EMILION

It was definitely a hot summer for French wine temperature wise, as well as for French wine estates changing hands, and it seems that the autumn season will continue along the same lines. The brothers Alain and Gérard Wertheimer, descendants of a collaborator of the legendary Coco Chanel and at the helm of the haute couture giant, have in fact become the new owners of Château Berliquet, yet another French estate after the neighboring Château Canon and Rauzan-Segla, in Margaux.
As The Drinks Business (www.thedrinksbusiness.com) reported, the 24 hectares estate - 18 of which vineyards, 75% Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon - is one of the most prominent in the Saint Emilion area. It has now been added to the portfolio of the Wertheimer brothers’ high-end wine properties on both sides of the Atlantic since in 2015 they also bought the Californian estate St Supery in Rutherford, Napa Valley.
Further, the newest acquisition of the two brothers is part of a trading mosaic, which since last July, in just over two months has seen top profile estates changing hands, like Château Fauchey (25 hectares in Cadillac, in the Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, sold to the Hong Kong Profitsun Holdings Real Estate Investment Company), Troplong Mondot at Saint Emilion, now owned by the French insurance group Scor), and at the beginning of September Château Phelan-Ségur in the Saint Estèphe appellation, acquired by the Belgian maritime transport magnate Philip Van de Vyvere.
