Category: France, BORDEAUX, Château Roumieu, 2016

Château Roumieu is a family-owned property passed down from generation to generation since the 18th century. Each generation has retained the same love of the terroir, respect for traditional methods of wine growing and a belief in the moral duty to transmit this knowledge from generation to generation. The name “Roumieu” refers to an important stage along the ancient pilgrimage route of “Saint-Jacques de Compostelle”, or St. James’ Way, back in medieval times – when “Roumieu” was used by the Moors to describe the Christians. A scallop shell, adopted as the Chateau’s emblem, features on the label, as “Saint-Jacques” is the French word for scallop. The Château is located on the calcareous-clay plateau of Haut-Barsac, on the same terroir as the most prestigious Cru wines of Sauternes, with Climens (1st cru) and Doisy-Védrines (2nd cru) both adjoining the property. Over the years, the Craveia-Goyaud family has committed to protect the unique character of the terroir.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

We only use traditional methods, organic fertilizers and our use of pesticides is controlled. More than anything we pay close attention to Mother nature since every year is different and we adapt our work to its sometimes capricious ways. After having harvested the best grapes, the wine is handled in accordance with traditions. The wine is left to develop for more than eighteen months in selected oak barrels in our peaceful cellar where temperature and hydrometry are constant so as not to hinder in any way the transformation of Roumieu into an exceptional wine.

Tasting Note

Very aromatic with hints of lime tree and other roasted and flowery touches present from the bouquet to the finish. Vegan.

Food Pairing

An excellent aperitif or after dinner drink, Château Roumieu is an excellent choice with scallops, fish, white meat, foie gras, blue cheeses, melon and dark chocolate. Also good with Asian food.
