Wines & Spirits

·

Moët Hennessy, the Wines & Spirits division of LVMH,  concluded a definitive agreement on May 20th to acquire Château du Galoupet, Cru Classé des Côtes-de-Provence since 1955. This estate is now officially part of Moët Hennessy’s portfolio.

Located along the coast in La Londe-les-Maures, Château du Galoupet enjoys an exceptional location near the Salins salt marshes opposite the Mediterranean islands of Porquerolles, Port Cros and Le Levant. The estate, already recognized and referenced at the end of the 17th century, benefits from a micro-climate which refreshes the vines with temperate and salty winds and is conducive to elegant wines and consistent yields.

A cru classé since 1955, the vineyard spans exceptional land with diverse soils. The 68 hectares of vines are located within a single block and produce three categories of wines: rosé (90%), red (5%), white (5%). The vines have an average age of 25 years, assuring wines of character and structure. Château du Galoupet produces a renowned rosé wine, combining ancestral methods and technical precision, adhering to the strict requirements of the finest wines of Provence.

Moët Hennessy will share its expertise in winemaking to further the estate’s commitment to quality and international exposure. The leader in luxury wines and spirits plans to enhance the 89 unplanted hectares, respecting the extraordinary preserved environment and offering a natural foreground.

Moët Hennessy is proud to share its expertise in the development of the Château du Galoupet domaine and to add a Cru Classé de Provence to its portfolio, its first rosé wine.
