FRANCE: Bouygues brothers buy Tronquoy-Lalande
Bordeaux château Tronquoy-Lalande has been bought by the brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues.
The two brothers, who head up property and communications company the Bouygues Group, have bought the château from Arlette Casteja for an undisclosed sum.
The 17-hectare property, a cru bourgeois superieur in Saint-Estèphe, is next to Château Montrose, which the brothers bought in April this year. The sale of Château Montrose is currently under dispute, however, between the brothers and Madame Caroline Charmolue, the daughter of the former owner.
The Bouygues' reportedly paid EUR140m (US$175m) for Château Montrose.
