Château Roquevieille is located on a continuation of Saint-Émilion’s clay-limestone plateau, on one of the highest points of the Gironde and facing due south; It enjoys an ideal location known for its “Côtes wines”.
The estate is made up of over 25 contiguous hectares, including 15 that are planted on a magnificent clay-limestone plateau, one of the most beautiful terroirs in the Bordeaux region.
The vineyard is planted with 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines have an average age of 30 years, and strict plot-by-plot selections are conducted using small-capacity tanks with full temperature control systems.
The wines are made in the purest Bordeaux tradition (long maceration, punching down, rack and return, etc.) with a few modern touches, including complete fermentation in barrels or whole clusters for certain batches.
All with the greatest respect for the exceptional terroir.
