Oil and gas magnate finalises largest Bordeaux vineyard sale of 2019
Billionaire industrialists the Perrodo family, have paid an estimated €60 million (US$67 million) for Château La Tour de Mons.
The ancient property in Margaux dates back to the 13th century, but was not classified in the 1855 Bordeaux ranking. It was sold in 1995 to French agricultural bank, Crédit Agricole, becoming part of its CA Grands Crus portfolio of estates.
The family office, which owns London-based oil and gas company Peneco, bought the 58-hectare château, which consists of two parts: the main estate of 48 hectares, and a smaller 10 hectare area called Marsac Séguineau, on 31 October.
