Côtes de Bordeaux Castillon
SAS Vignobles Sandmann
Australians: Mr and Mrs Frank Kalyk from Sydney
The vineyard represented some of the best terroir of the appellation with over four and half hectares of Merlot vines planted on gently sloping clay-chalk south facing parcels. The seller worked with Christian Dauriac as a consultant for the vines and wine making and had invested heavily in wine making infrastructure installing a state of the art winery designed by Touton Architects of Bordeaux. Vineyards-Bordeaux sourced the buyer, drafted and brokered an LOI, assembled and appointed the professional teams, managed the professional experts through the due diligence period followed by the transaction process, negotiated detailed purchase contract terms and set up post purchase management structures, international press exposure and professional support networks for the acquirers.
There were some sad circumstances surrounding the sellers need to dispose of this asset, but we are thrilled that Mr and Mrs Kalyk bring such passion for maintaining the very high standards that have been set to make the most of this exceptional terroir.
