Christian Moueix is president of JP Moueix holdings which owns various estates on the right bank of Bordeaux including Château Pétrus, Trotanoy, La Fleur-Pétrus and Magdelaine. Jean-Pierre Moueix, Christian’s father, was largely responsible for building up the reputations of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol in particular before his retirement in 1973.
Since 1991 Christian has been at the helm of the family company which also acts as a bulk buyer of grapes from other select right bank properties. Son Edouard Moueix is now increasingly involved with Christian spending more time at another important interest, Dominus in California’s Napa Valley.
The standing of Moueix makes them especially well-placed to select The Society’s Saint-Emilion and Exhibition Pomerol, which are blended exclusively for us. It shows the full, supple texture of Pomerol to excellent advantage and has become a much-loved wine among members over the years.
