Dominique Meneret, owner of Domaine de Courteillac, had his first contact with wine at the age of six months when his father passed a finger dipped in a glass of Saint-Emilion across his lips. He was born in the celebrated town, the cradle of Grand Crus and a UNESCO World Heritage site. His family owned the Grand Cru Classé Château Larmande.
After founding in 1988 the wine merchant company named Bernard & Meneret, which became later-on Ballande & Meneret, he purchased Domaine de Courteillac in 1997.
In 2006 Dominique Meneret retires from the merchant business, after having purchased and sold the most well-known “Crus Classés” of Bordeaux for thirty years.
He did not however quit the world of wine and now spends all his energy in the management and promotion of Domaine de Courteillac.
Dominique Mèneret has sold recently Domaine de Courteillac to a Chinese group, Dahoe Wines & Spirits, but will keep the distribution – www.dmavins.com – and remain as a consultant to the vineyard.
