The suspense had lasted for weeks in Saint-Emilion.

Château Beauséjour Dufau Lagarosse, for sale since June 21, 2020, finally remains in the family ... or almost.

The Beauséjour-Courtin company was chosen by Safer, an organization under the supervision of the State, responsible for leading the transaction.

The attribution of the property to the Beauséjour-Courtin company signals both the maintenance of a Duffau-Lagarosse at the head of the operation and the arrival of a cosmetics giant, Clarins, in the prestigious Bordeaux vineyard. .

On November 7, 2020, the 32 heirs of the estate had yet voted over 90% in favor of another buyer, the Cuvelier family, installed at Clos Fourtet for 20 years.

Through a new public call for tenders, made compulsory by the intervention of Safer, two new candidates had joined the ranks.

Stéphanie du Boüard, who manages Château Angelus, a Premier Grand Cru Classé A, and Stéphanie Duffau-Lagarosse, one of the heiresses, supported and financed by the Courtin-Clarins.

Guarantee the installation of Joséphine Lagarosse

On March 18, a Safer technical committee decided to give the keys to Beauséjour to Stéphanie de Boüard.

Another twist three weeks later: the board of directors of Safer finally chose the Duffau Lagarosse-Courtin-Clarins alliance.

In its press release, Safer insists on an express condition for this attribution.

She asks the future owners to “guarantee and secure the installation of Joséphine Duffau-Lagarosse, a young farmer”.

A cautious condition.

Will it be enough to quench the annoyance of the two rejected competitors?

For them, it is Clarins that blows the part for them by offering themselves a premier grand cru at 75 million euros on 6.8 hectares.
