DUCLOT has been a wine merchant in Bordeaux for 130 years, with a stock of several million bottles stored in its cellars. Though it was purchased by Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1956, the company, founded by Sixte Duclot in 1886, kept its original name.
DUCLOT offers a range of services to professionals: in addition to the exports, the company sells the great Bordeaux wines to restaurants via DUCLOT La Vinicole based in Paris and New York City.
When Jean-François Moueix replaced his father at the head of the company in 1970, he introduced direct sales to private customers, and then opened a first wine store in Bordeaux, l'INTENDANT, in 1989. Shortly afterwards, other stores were launched: BADIE (Bordeaux), CHATEAUNET (Paris and www.chateaunet.com), La CAVE DES GALERIES LAFAYETTE (Paris) and CHAI & BAR (Brussels). And also www.chateauprimeur.com, an online wine store dedicated to the Bordeaux “en primeur” sales.
In 2014, Jean-François and his son Jean Moueix hired Ariane Khaida to manage DUCLOT ; she ensures that the family's historical values are respected, while creating new opportunities for the future.
