Dassault Wine Estates
The Dassault family, passionate pioneers in the aeronautic industry, new technologies and the art market, became interested in fine wines very early.

Marcel Dassault was a visionary business leader. He bought
Château Couperie in 1955 on an impulse. He gave his family name to the property and put everything in place to make it a famous classified growth. The property has seen the quality of its wines improve vintage after vintage.

In 1969, with its promotion to the rank of Grand Cru Classé,
Château Dassault achieved the status it deserved.

The entire purpose and mission of Dassault Wine Estates is to pass on, over time, the necessary conditions for the crafting of fine wines. The Dassault family created Dassaut Wine Estates because quality wine has today become a major issue on a global dimension.

It is a way of life, a heritage, a sign of excellence. It has become essential to apply these same values to the wine sector and contribute to the longevity of french know-how and expertise.

These entrepreneurial values of passion, progress and a permanent search for excellence, the values of the Dassault family, apply to all the group’s wine-related activities.

Over the years, the properties owned by Dassault Wine Estates have increased to nearly fifty hectares and now form one of the largest vineyard holdings in Saint-Emilion.
