CHÂTEAU HAUT VIEUX CHÊNE

600 years old ! That’s the age of the old oak planted on our land, to which the Château pays tribute. It’s there to remind us of the estate’s history. When my family bought it in 1879, the Chalet Régner, as it was formerly known, grew oak for timber. They replaced these with Uni Blanc vines. I am the fourth generation of the Roy family on the estate to perpetuate our expertise while diversifying. In 1994, I decided to change the name and restructure the vineyard: today, 80% of our 10 hectares are planted with Merlot.
