Château de La Dauphine produces around 200,000 bottles a year. The Labrune family made the purchase through its personal holding company FCB, which is also the majority shareholder in healthcare-technology company Cegedim.

In a statement released late yesterday, the Halley family said that the transaction "has enabled the property to remain under family management and French ownership". The Labrunes are expected to continue the Halley family's biodynamic strategy. 

Stéphanie Barousse, previously Château de La Dauphine's commercial director, has been appointed deputy CEO of the Château de La Dauphine company.

Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
