Chateau de Rouillac

Appellation : Pessac-Leognan

In the XIXth century, Baron Haussmann owned Château de Rouillac, began big works, and produced a delicious wine which Napoleon III was already crazy about! He associated horses with the history of the property by building very beautiful stables. Over time, the domain knew how to cultivate its memories and its exceptional soil of Gravels. Laurent Cisneros and his family are happy to take up the reins again of this magnificent property and of its excellent vintage.

The owner's pitch.

“C’est un vrai projet de vie, familial, entrepreneurial et profondément humain ! J’ai besoin d’émotions et de tisser des liens forts pour créer et avancer. On retrouve la nature et cette alchimie dans les vins du domaine. En étant de plus en plus vertueuse, la propriété favorise l’expression de son terroir, préserve l’environnement et affine les qualités organoleptiques de ses vins.”
Laurent Cisneros
