Wine Spectator: Bordeaux Battle Royal

April 9, 2021

It was a sale that had all of St.-Emilion paying attention. After weeks of regulatory holdups, Josephine Duffau-Lagarrosse and Prisca Courtin-Clarins, representing her family, have acquired Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse, a Premier Grand Cru Classé, after the deal was approved by SAFER, the French land management agency, for €75 million (about $89m).

Courtin-Clarins’ family, which owns the highly successful Clarins Cosmetics, is her backer. This is the Courtin family’s first foray into winegrowing. The news comes after several months of surprises. Wine Spectator has the full story.
