The French insurance company MAIF is leaving the wine industry and selling Château Dauzac, the 1855-classified Grand Cru Classé Margaux with its 49 hectares of bearing vines. It has opted for the offer put forward by Christian Roulleau, founder of the Breton group SAMSIC which specialises in business services and boasts 83,000 employees and 25,000 customers in areas such as cleaning and security.  Christian Roulleau is now the sole runner in the negotiation phase and the transaction is expected to be completed by next summer.

A 5th Classified Growth with the ambitions of a 2nd

The sale of Château Dauzac, which was widely rumoured within the trade, took a long time to reach its conclusion. Until recently, it was still being denied by its managing director. “This rumour has been going around for many years and is unfounded. We are building the brand and are rolling out our strategic plan directed at 2020”, Laurent Fortin told Vitisphere last summer. A 5th Classified Growth, Château Dauzac aims to be perceived as a ‘super second’.
