Until 1993 the property was
owned by madame Veuve Arnaux. This year Philippe du Roy de Blicquy from Paris who had
been working in advertising business was looking for a domain somewhere in
France and when Domaine Villeneuve was for sale he bought it together with a
friend from Paris the notar mr. Wallut. The vineyards (only 8,4 ha.) was
very old and and in a state of neglect. The very dynamic Mr. Roy de Blicquy got everything in order in the vineyards and
in the cellars. In 2003 he (66 years old)
had some health problems and decided to concentrate his many activities from
another location and
he then sold his part of Domaine Villeneuve to Stanislas.
