France’s top 10 richest drinks barons

30th August, 2017 by Rupert Millar

10. Ginette Moulin and family

Worth: €3.5bn
Company: Galeries Lafayette
Sector: Retail

Ginette Moulin is the chairwoman and majority shareholder of Galeries Lafayette, France’s leading upmarket department store which was created by her grandfather, Théophile Bader in 1912.

Furthermore, she is a minority shareholder in French supermarket chain Carrefour.

She and her family are rather more recent entrants into the world of châteaux ownership but dived right in in 2014 with the acquisition of a healthy four properties in Bordeaux in partnership with Daniel and Florence Cathiard who own Smith Haut Lafitte (and are themselves lower down on the larger list).

Chief of these is Château Beauregard in Pomerol – part of the cluster of properties on the eastern edge of the commune that also includes Vieux Château Certan and La Conseillante – and also Pavillon de Beauregard in Lalande-de-Pomerol, Château Bastor-Lamontagne in Sauternes and Château Saint-Robert in Graves.
