The Clos Vieux Rochers vineyard sits in the rolling countryside just outside Puisseguin, close to Saint Emilion. Having been established for many years it is now owned and run by Robert Brimfield and Stephen McMahon. Their Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux is a quality French wine and they strive to keep it unique to fulfil both the tastes of the modern wine drinker and their traditional client base. They have renovated the property and offer self catering gite accommodation for guests. They offer tours and tastings where you can explore the vineyards grounds and learn a little too.
Robert Brimfield and Stephen McMahon took their love of wine and previous connection with the wine industry and did what many people dream of doing... they bought a vineyard and became winemakers. “The property at Clos Vieux Rochers has been producing wine for many years and we saw the potential in the property and have wasted no time in putting our own mark by renovating the buildings themselves, planting more vines and developing the wine to meet the demands of the modern and traditional palate.”
Aged in 2 year old French Oak barrels for 18 months.
