Sous le Château

Sous le Château is one of the Climats of the Saint-Romain vineyard. It is located under the rocky outcrop which served as a Merovingian necropolis in the 4th century, then as a feudal castle until the 11th century when it was burned down and destroyed. These steeply sloping vines were abandoned after phyloxera and replanted in the 1970s.

A dream vintage which offers generous volumes and superb quality. Water is a major player during the winter which allows the vines to build up their reserves before a particularly hot and dry summer. Favored by a mild spring, flowering took place perfectly with beautiful and numerous clusters. No major climatic incident hampers the growing cycle. The harvest, which was in impeccable health, took place from August 27 to September 15.


Regarded as the terroir the most accomplished of the A.O.C. Saint Romain. Its exposure towards South-East and its limestone stony soil give a wine of personality mixing rich but subtle aromas.
