CHÂTEAU ROCHERS BELLEVUE

The name of the winery comes from the village of Belvès : in old French, Bellevue and from the limestone bedrock upon which the vineyard is located. My family has been growing the vines at Château Rochers Bellevue for three generations, taking the utmost care to express the full subtlety of Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux wines. I naturally joined ma father on the estate in 1994, then my companion Lilian followed in 2012. Our vines are located on clay-limestone slopes that extend beyond the Saint-Emilion hillside plots. Since 2003, we have been practicing biodynamic winegrowing, convinced of its benefits for our grapes.
