The wine estate of the Pinault family, which owns the luxury group Kering, will merge with that of the Henriot family, owner of the eponymous champagne.
The Pinault and Henriot families, owners of Artémis Domaines and Maisons & Domaines Henriot, respectively, will pool their wineries in a merger. The deal would bring together brands such as Chateau Latour, which is owned by the Pinault family, and houses like Champagne Henriot.
“The merger of Maisons & Domaines Henriot and Artémis Domaines is a wonderful opportunity to bring together the treasures of our wine heritage under one banner,” explained François Pinault in a statement.
In terms of wines and spirits, François Pinault already had a very fine portfolio of great vineyards, one of the richest in Bordeaux with Château Latour or Baronne Guichard (Gironde) but also in Burgundy with the Domaine d’Eugénie in Vosne-Romanée.
In addition to Henriot champagne, the family’s ownership of Bouchard Père & Fils, the historic house of Beaune since 1731, as well as William Fèvre, the first producer of great wines in Chablis, are included in the rapprochement with the Pinaults.
After a recent foray into Champagne at Dizy and the conclusion of this merger with Maisons & Domaines Henriot, Artémis Domaines will have one of the most prestigious vineyards in the area.
