Yannick Evenou buys Chateau Réaut via Facebook share offer (France)
Yannick Evenou, managing director of Chateau La Dominique, Chateau Fayat and Chateau Clement-Pichon, has bought a Cotes de Bordeaux estate in his own name. Part of a 12-strong consortium, Evenou bought the 26ha Chateau Réaut (formerly Chateau Réaut la Gravière) in Cotes de Bordeaux from Champagne Roederer. The deal was completed via the creation of a property sharing group or GFA (Groupe Foncier Agricole), with 400 members of the public taking shares in the property. The scheme had used social networking site Facebook to attract potential investors, reports Decanter.
