Friday October 10 2014 by Vitisphere


A subsidiary of the construction and public works group Fayat, the wine division of Clément Fayat includes Château La Dominique (a Saint-Emilion great classed growth bought in 1969 from the Baillencourt family), Château Clément-Pichon (AC Haut-Médoc, a cru bourgeois purchased in 1985) and Château Fayat (Pomerol, an amalgamation of three properties, in 2009). Jean-Myrtil Laurent (39, our photo) became managing director of all three properties on September 15. After starting his career with Rémy Cointreau, Jean-Myrtil Laurent was previously marketing and sales director with Bordeaux negociant firm Mähler-Besse (which came under control of the Castéja family last summer).


Chairman and CEO of the Fayat Group, Clément Fayat is ranked France’s 53rd wealthiest person by Challenges magazine. He is quoted as saying, “I am a farmer. I still have soil on my boots, so I am delighted to own vineyards. Although my group posts turnover in excess of 3 billion euros, I spend time in my vineyards to ensure constant progress.”
