It’s a rare occurrence when a château gets two heavy-hitting owners in relatively quick succession, rarer still when the situation is applied to three different properties.
Châteaux Siaurac (Lalande-de-Pomerol), Vray Croix de Gay (Pomerol) and Le Prieuré (St-Emilion GCC) were owned by the Guichard family when in 2014 François Pinault-controlled Artémis Domaines (Châteaux Latour, Grillet, etc.) took a shareholding interest, acquiring all three properties outright in 2017.
Three years later in 2020 they were sold again, this time to insurance company Suravenir, owner of high-flying St-Estèphe third growth, Château Calon-Ségur.
