Chateau Lascombes in Margaux sold

It is not often that one of the major chateaux in Bordeaux changes hands. Buyer is the French insurance company MACSF. Seller is Colony Capital, an American investment company.

The price tag is not official but assumed to be around 200 million euros for around 100 hectares. In other words, 2 million euros per hectare. But it is not only the vineyards that have been sold. Buildings (a beautify chateau for example) and stock valued to 30-50 million euro are also included.

Chateau Lascombes is one of the biggest estates in Margaux, Medoc, with some 100 ha of vineyards. They make around 500,000 bottles of wine each year. Lascombes was classified as a second growth (2:e cru) in the historic 1855 classification.
