Winemaker & owner
“ Christian Moueix joined the family business in 1970. In the desire to achieve the highest quality, meticulous selection processes are used such as reducing the size of the crop through de-budding, canopy management and green harvests (practiced by Christian Moueix for the first time in 1973). Passionate about viticulture, he added to the firm’s vineyard holdings through the acquisition of remarkable vineyard sites. Today, it is also the owner and producer of several prestigious crus in Pomerol, Saint-Émilion and Napa Valley, California. ”
“What makes a great wine? A great wine, for me, is a wine that travels well. It’s like an individual.” – Christian Moueix.
