Description

Château Roumieu is a family-owned property 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 a critical 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 protecting the unique character of the terroir.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vineyard surface: 15Ha

Soil: This limestone-clay plateau is rich in marine fossils. It consists of a 20-40cm layer of red clay over a limestone plateau.

Over the years, the Craveia-Goyaud family has committed to protect the unique character of the terroir. The vines are managed to irreproachable standards, guided by a sustainable viticultural regime, and restricted yields. To make the finest wine possible, the grapes at Château Roumieu are painstakingly picked by hand one by one, in successive sweeps through the vine rows, picking only the grapes 100% affected by botrytis. The wine is then slowly vinified and matured in oak barrels.

Tasting Note

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

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.
