Baron Philippe de Rothschild

A BPDR e-mail statement, following the death of Baroness Philippine on Aug. 22, has announced that Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, 51, the Baroness’ first born son, will be the next chairman of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, the family company that controls Chateau Mouton Rothschild.

Baroness Philippine ran the Bordeaux winery and its vineyards since the death of her father, Baron Philippe, in 1988.

Philippe de Rothschild is a graduate of Harvard Business School and has been vice chairman of the board since 2006. He has worked as mergers analyst at Lazard in New York and as finance director of an Italian subsidiary of Compagnie Generale des Eaux, the forerunner of Vivendi SA.

The family company runs Chateau Clerc Milon and Chateau d’Armailhac in Bordeaux, as well as its Opus One partnership in California and Almaviva in Chile. The company says it sells about 25 million bottles a year.
