If you are a Bordeaux fan, the name Château Pétrus will be no stranger to you – even if the wine might be, given it’s exalted status and price. But, such is the result of something made in nearly miniscule quantities. Along with Pétrus, the Moueix family own several other “right bank” Châteaux in St. Emilion as well as the Dominus Estate in Napa Valley.
Jean-Pierre Moueix began the family business 1937, founding the Établissements J. P. Moueix as a négociant and shipper of wines from St.-Émilion and Pomerol, near their home town of Libourne. Many years and several Château acquisitions later, Jean-Pierre’s son Christian began exploring the idea of developing a winery in Napa Valley.
Join us as we talk with Edouard Moueix, the third generation of his family to continue the business, about the Moueix properties, Bordeaux vintages and pricing, and the Dominus Estate.
