François Pinault takes over Champagne Jacquesson

Artémis Domaines, the wine company of businessman François Pinault and a subsidiary of the Artémis Group, has acquired the Champagne House Jacquesson. This acquisition expands the Breton billionaire’s network of wine estates.


Artémis Domaines, which already owns Château Latour and Champagne Henriot, among other wines, has become the “sole shareholder” of Champagne Jacquesson, of which it has been a minority shareholder since February 2022. The company held a 33.5% stake in Jacquesson alongside the Chiquet family. This is a first for the luxury group, which had until now left the LVMH group free to develop its activities in Champagne.

Frédéric Engerer, Managing Director of Artémis Domaines, said: “The extraordinary work of the Chiquet family, which has succeeded in making the Maison Jacquesson a key player in the Champagne region, recognised by wine lovers throughout the world and acclaimed by the greatest critics. Its positioning of excellence and the winemaking character of its wines resonate perfectly with the values and know-how of Artémis Domaines. After a period of knowledge transfer during the year 2022, we are very honoured to be able to take over.”


Maison Jacquesson, founded in Dizy, Champagne, was previously owned by the Chiquet family, who acquired it in 1974. The estate covers 40 hectares and produces 300,000 bottles a year, a small production compared to the volumes of the big Champagne houses. The ultra-luxury niche positioning of Maison Jacquesson is in line with the values of the Kering group.


Jean Garandeau, Jacquesson’s Managing Director since September 2022, will retain his position. Jean-Hervé Chiquet, the former owner, will continue to sit on the House’s Board of Directors.


With its latest acquisition, Artémis Domaines now owns around ten wine estates, including Château Latour and Clos de Tard in Burgundy, Château Grillet in the Rhône Valley, Bouchard Père et Fils and Henriot in Champagne, as well as Eisele Vineyard in California and Beaux Frères in Oregon, USA.
