Michel Rolland sells his Bordeaux chateau to a Chinese

The Rolland family, including the famous wine consultant and wine maker Michel Rolland, has owned Chateau Bon Pasteur in Pomerol in Bordeaux since the 1920s. Bon Pasteur has now been sold to a Chinese. Suton Pan is a financier and entrepreneur who also got two other chateaux in the deal.

  • Chateau le Bon Pasteur, 6.62 ha
  • Chateau Rolland-Maillet in St Emilion,3.35 ha, and
  • Chateau Bertineau St Vincent in Lalande de Pomerol, 5.5 ha

The price for the in total 16 hectares has not been disclosed. Our guess is that it will be somewhere between 1 and 4 million euro. Per hectare.

Suton Pan, through his company Goldin Group, is already a winery owner since he some time back bought the Cult Winery Sloan Estate in Napa Valley in California that he bought for 40 million dollars. All according to The Wine Cellar Insider blog by Jeff Leve. (Jeff is also an occasional guest writer on BKWine Magazine.)

The current technical team will remain in place under the direction of Dany and Michel Rolland according to a press release from the previous owners.
