Chai & Bar is owned by DUCLOT, a major wine merchant in Bordeaux with a stock of several million bottles and large formats, purchased directly from the chateaux and stored in 20,000 m2 new cellars. Founded by Sixte DUCLOT in 1886, the company kept its name when it was acquired in 1956 by Jean-Pierre Moueix.

When Jean-François Moueix succeeded his father in 1970, he introduced a new activity, complementary to traditional trading in France and abroad: selling wine to private customers, first by mail order and then in stores L'INTENDANT and BADIE (Bordeaux), LA CAVE DU LAFAYETTE GOURMET (Paris), La BORDEAUXTHÈQUE (Paris in Galeries Lafayette), CHAI & BAR (Brussels), CHATEAUNET with its concept of website and associated stores (ie stores 3C-CHÂTEAUX CASH & CARRY, Paris). Finally, CHATEAUPRIMEUR is dedicated to the online sales of “en primeur” Bordeaux wines.

This wine merchant status ensures that there is no intermediary between the chateaux and the shops/online sales of DUCLOT Company; that is why you will always find here the right prices and wines in perfect condition.

If Bordeaux growths are historically the core business of DUCLOT, in recent years the group has extended its expertise to great wines from other regions. After a strict selection with tasting sessions, the range presents the most beautiful estates and the best winemakers in Burgundy, Rhône, Loire, Champagne... and other major French and foreign vineyards. This offer is available in all the company's stores, with the exception of L'INTENDANT and LA BORDEAUXTHÈQUE only specialized in Bordeaux wines.

DUCLOT today: Jean-François Moueix is president of the family holding VIDELOT including PETRUS in Pomerol which is managed by his son Jean Moueix. Since March 2014, Ariane Khaida runs DUCLOT; she has outlined fruitful prospects for the group's future in the world, while perpetuating the family values that are dear to this historic trading house.
