Clos Rougeard sold to Bouygues brothers
Nady and Charly Foucault during the 2011 vintage
It was first rumoured back at the beginning of January 2017 that the iconic Clos Rougeard was to be sold to the owners – Martin and Olivier Bouygues – of Château Montrose in Saint Estèphe, the sale was finally confirmed on Friday.
It remains to be seen whether buying this iconic Saumur estate really makes sense as it was the character and dedication of the Foucault brothers – Charly and Nady – that in time made the estate famous and special.
