Château de La Dauphine announces the taking-over of its activities by the Labrune family, thereby enabling a continuation of the efforts undertaken these past fifteen years by its previous owners, the Halley family.

Château de La Dauphine owns and operates a 40 hectare vineyard in AOC Fronsac and produces about 200,000 bottles per year. Château de La Dauphine’s first wine is recognized by professionals and the press to be one of the Libourne region’s highest quality and most consistent wines.

Jean Halley, who died in 2011, took over Château de La Dauphine in December 2000; he and his son, Guillaume, carried out major investments to enhance the expression of the terroir and develop the property’s reputation.

The acquisition of 100% of the shares of the SAS Château de La Dauphine by FCB SA, the Labrune family’s personal holding company, has enabled the property to remain under family management and French ownership. FCB is also the majority shareholder of Cegedim, a company with a turnover of 500 million euros isted on Euronext Paris.

The Labrune family have clearly expressed a desire to continue the previous owners’ strategy of producing high quality biodynamic wines expressing the elegance of the terroir, strengthening the property’s partnership with Bordeaux wine merchants distributing the wines in France and internationally, and developing wine tourism.

Stéphanie Barousse, previously Château de La Dauphine’s Commercial Director, has been appointed Deputy CEO of the SAS Château de La Dauphine.
