Grapevine Archive for St Emilion
Last week we were visited by Edouard Moueix from Bordeaux négociant house, J.P. Moueix. As well as owning some of the most illustrious properties on Bordeaux’s right bank – including Châteaux Petrus, Trotanoy and Magdelaine – the family-owned company produces numerous own-label blends and distributes wines from various Bordeaux châteaux. The Society has had the pleasure of working with Edouard and J.P. Moueix for a number of years.
Edouard is one of the most enthusiastic and engaging figures in Bordeaux wine, and so I enlisted the help of our trusty video camera to ask him about the company, the dramatic renovations at their recently acquired Saint-Emilion property, Château Belair Monange, and his interests outside wine.
I hope you enjoy the results, and should you wish to try some of his excellent wines, you can browse a selection at various price points below.
