In 2010, BĂ©atrice and JĂ©rĂ´me de Monteil decided it was time for a complete change of career and lifestyle, throwing themselves wholeheartedly into running Château Haut-Rocher. Owned by the family since the 15th century, the estate is located within the original boundaries of the Saint-Emilion wine region, in the village of Saint-Etienne de Lisse. With 13 ha of vines (8ha in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation area and 5ha in Castillon CĂ´tes de Bordeaux) the vines serve the labels Château Haut-Rocher and Château BrĂ©hat, respectively.

With the goal of eventually achieving organic certification, BĂ©atrice and JĂ©rĂ´me have enlisted the support of a team of technicians and consultant winemaker Thomas Duclos, after realising their ambitions; something they realized via their Saint-Emilion vineyards.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, notes of strawberry, raspberry, and red currant come to mind. On the palate, those red fruit notes carry over with some added mellow oak notes and a bit savoriness. Fine grained tannins, medium acidity, and ripe fruit round this out. Pair with a hearty lamb stew, shepherd’s pie, or even some game- think seared duck breast. 

Method

Made from 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Cabernet Franc, the grapes come from the Cotes de Castillon appellation, adjoining Saint-Émilion- sustainable viticulture practices are used as the winery works toward organic certification. Vines are planted on gentle hills and valleys with sandy clay and limestone soil. Aged for 15 months; 50% in tanks and 50% French oak casks, half new and half previously used once.
