CHÂTEAU DES ROCHERS

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.

Tasting comments :

Bright, deep garnet in color. The nose evokes underbrush in the autumn. The palate is powerful, with aromas of very ripe fruit accompanied by delicate notes of cedar. This biodynamically produced wine encapsulates the exceptional Castillon terroir, leaving room for nature. A natural wine without technological artifice.

Wine pairings :

Shoulder of mutton.
