France’s next 10 richest drinks barons

14. Jean-Claude Fayat

Worth: €1.5bn
Challenges 500 position: 51
Company: Fayat
Sector: Construction/Wine

The builders of everything from public buildings to highways, the Fayat family also owns estates in Bordeaux; Clément-Pichon in Haut Médoc, La Dominique in Saint Emilion and Château Fayat in Pomerol.

When the group’s founder, Clément Fayat, bought what is now Clément Pichon in 1976 he reportedly wanted to rename it Château Pichon (if was owned by the Pichon family from 1601 to 1880) but a rather robust reaction from fellow Médocain properties of the same name led him to reconsider and in 1985 it was rebaptised as Clément–Pichon.
