Château Roquevieille Cuvée Tradition

This property is located on one of the highest points in Gironde, an outstanding vineyard site at an elevation of over 110 metres. It is a befitting location for Thomas Guibert, a keen mountain enthusiast, and one to which he decided to devote his time and attention. In 1972, the property was bought by his wife Nathalie’s father – little did he know at the time that within the family there would be fresh blood who would live up to the challenge of taking over the estate.

Château Roquevieille boasts a prime location facing due South, along from the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, known as the ‘Côtes’. It extends over 20 unbroken hectares and is home to Merlot, Cabernet franc and Cabernet-Sauvignon, all of which produce wines showing sense of place yet also offering enjoyment.

Thomas, an engineer and winemaker, now devotes all his time to the property and in 2017 recruited the help of consultant winemaker Thomas Duclos at Oenoteam. That same year is one that no wine grower will forget and Roquevieille managed to avoid frost damage due to the airflow and the south-facing aspect of its vineyards.

Two of its wines are perfect illustrations of true Bordeaux traditions. The ‘Tradition’ label, which offers a fusion of suppleness and elegance, and the single-vineyard ‘Excellence’ label, where a modern twist is added by fermenting the wines entirely in barrels.

 

Testimonial:

“Oenoteam has always handled the analyses. When I took over the entire property in 2017, I asked Thomas Duclos if he would help me with the winemaking. His sensitivity to terroir character stemming from clay-limestone soils, which he is very familiar with, and his technical skills have allowed me to take a confident approach to faultless yet also compelling wines at Château Roquevieille”. Thomas Guibert.
