A Video Interview with Edouard Moueix

Posted by: | Comments (0)

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.
