Description

Chateau Grand RousseauChateau Grand Rousseau comes from near the bastide town of Sauveterre de Guyenne, 35 km from Saint Emilion. It is one of several chateaux owned by the renowned Lumeau family who have been wine makers for 4 generations, establishing Vignobles Lumeau in 1840. They combine traditional wine making techniques with modern oenology.

Grand Rousseau with foodGrand Rousseau is an ancient fortified estate and lies at Caumont.  With its three remaining towers, defensive walls and moat it’s actually one of the oldest local properties.  In the 16th and 17th centuries it was the property of the Albret family. Jeanne d’Albret, Queen of Navarre, stayed there several times with her son, the future King Henry IV of France.

Delicious with food, Grand Rousseau will pair well with roast beef and lamb, pork with stuffing, turkey, venison, duck, pigeon, pheasant and hard cheeses.

    We’ve loved this Claret since Bordeaux Undiscovered first introduced it. If you like wines that go well with your Sunday roasts you can’t beat it.
