Patrice Monmousseau et Dr VIjay Malya le jour de l'acquisition


A new owner

In 2005 the Taittinger Group is sold but the Champagne remains owned by the family. Once again Bouvet Ladubay has the possibility to choose its future and a new owner. After three visits in three months to Saumur, an understanding of the spirit of the House and a belief in its Director, Patrice Monmousseau, Dr Vijay Mallya, president of the world's 3rd largest beers and spirit business, becomes the new owner. As with Claude Taittinger, Dr Mallya wants the Company to preserve and perpetuate an autonomous family spirit.
