First bottled in 1970, this wine has often been awarded for its quality.
On a 18,9 acres (7,5 hectares) surface, located on a sandy and gravel tableland, to the north east of Libourne, the CHATEAU de ROQUEBRUNE vineyard has been cultivated for 5 generations with the care necessary to elaborate a great wine.

This wine is like a child to whom the owner gave all his love. The soil has been consistently worked with regard to the best ecological and environmental practices.

Harvesting of the grapes is done manually when optimum maturity has been reached.

The winemaking process is achieved with great attention, permitting the elaboration of a wine of character, rich, enduring in the nose as on the palate, savory and full bodied with good ageing potentials.
