Moet Hennessy has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase Chateau du Galoupet, Cru Classe in the Cotes-de-Provence. The transaction is expected to be completed in the second half of 2019.
Located along the coast in La Londe-les-Maures, Chateau du Galoupet enjoys an exceptional setting against the Salins 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. Cru classe 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: rose (90%), red (5%), white (5%). The vines have an average age of 25 years, assuring wines of character and structure.
In response to growing demand in France and around the world, Chateau du Galoupet offers a renowned rose wine, combining ancestral methods and technical precision, adhering to the strict requirements of the fine wines of Provence.
All the Chateau’s wines have won awards from guidebooks or international competitions. Moet Hennessy will share its expertise in winemaking to further the commitment to quality and international exposure.
Finally, Moet Hennessy aims to enhance the 89 unplanted hectares, respecting the extraordinary preserved environment and offering a natural foreground.
Moet Hennessy, leader of luxury wines and spirits, is proud to share its expertise in the development of the domaine and to add a Cru Classe de Provence to its portfolio, its first ros wine.
