The gigantic French group of companies "Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy" was created in 1987. The founder and CEO Bernard Jean Étienne Arnault (*1949) also owns 47.5% of the shares (64% of the voting rights) in the company through his holding company "Groupe Arnault". This has a dominant stake in champagne production through the five associated top houses Krug, Mercier, Moët et Chandon, Ruinart and Veuve Clicquot-Ponsardin. There is also an interest or ownership in the Cape Mentelle and Domaine Chandon wineries (wineries of the same name in Australia, Brazil, China, India and California), Château Cheval Blanc, Château d'Yquem and Château La Tour-du-Pin-Figeac (France), Cloudy Bay (New Zealand) and the Hennessy cognac company.
