Château Rochers Bellevue

My family has cultivated the vines at Château Rochers Bellevue for three generations, and does its utmost to express the full subtlety of Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux through its wine. Guided by this family passion, it was natural for me to take over the helm from my father with my companion, Lilian. Our vines are situated on the clay-limestone slopes that extend beyond the Saint-Emilion hillside plots. Since 2003 we have practiced biodynamic winegrowing, since we are convinced of its benefits for our grapes.

Our vineyard is situated on limestone rock, giving it its name of Rochers Bellevue.

A bright, deep garnet in colour. The nose evokes underbrush in the autumn. The palate is powerful, with aromas of very ripe fruit accompanied by delicate notes of cedar.
