After the very sad news early in the month of the demise of Louis-Fabrice Latour, head of the long-established house of Louis Latour, there have been developments at others of the leading negociant houses of Beaune.

Pierre-Henry Gagey has announced that he will be stepping down from his role as Président-Directeur-Général (Chief Executive) of Jadot which he has held for 31 years and handing the role to Thomas Seiter, recruited Bouchard Père & Fils (and William Fevre) where he was Directeur-Général (Managing Director). Pierre-Henry’s son Thibault is promoted to Directeur-Général at Louis Jadot.

This heralded the important news made public on Friday 30th September. Following escalating rumours over the past few months, the merger of the Henriot family’s wine interests (Maisons & Domaines Henriot) with François Pinault’s Artemis Domaines has now been announced. This is a merger of two important players in the world of wine, covering more than just Burgundy. The combined operation will be known as Artemis Domaines with the Pinault family holding the majority shares and the Henriot side maintaining a significant stake. Frédéric Engerer (Artemis) will manage the operation with Gilles de Larouzière Henriot presiding over the Conseil de Surveillance.

The combined company has the following impressive array of producers.


Bouchard Père & Fils, Beaune
Clos de Tart, Morey-St-Denis
Domaine d’Eugenie, Vosne-Romanée
William Fevre, Chablis


Château Latour, Pauillac
