He is co-owner of Château Mouton Rothschild and a member of the Supervisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA.
From 2010 to 2013, he was a member of the committee responsible for overseeing the major renovation work at Château Clerc Milon and Château Mouton Rothschild. He is regularly involved in public relations work for the family company, both in France and abroad.
After studying art history, he joined the Paris branch of Artemis Fine Arts as a research and sales assistant in the department of Old Master drawings.

In 2004, with two leading art experts, he created Salamander Fine Arts, a company dealing in high-quality Old Master drawings whose substantial resources enabled it to acquire masterpieces for museums and leading collectors.
