Château des Roches (Château du Cros)

DESCRIPTION

The history of the Château du Cros is closely linked to that of the Province of Guyenne, and began in 1196 when Richard the Lionheart gave a fief, the Domaine du Cros, to Sir Boson Casau.

In 1322, Bernard de Segur obtained permission from King Edward II to fortify the Castle by surrounding it with a limestone wall. Located on the heights of Loupiac, overlooking the Garonne valley, the castle became a strategic stronghold, and took the name Château du Cros.

The vineyard includes a true rarity for the region – a one hectare plot planted in 1907, which has been producing a real Loupiac nectar for four generations.

This estate belongs to the Boyer family and Catherine Boyer, the fourth generation, has conserved the family philosophy “Tradition, Quality and Know-how”.

Under the leadership of Catherine Boyer, Christophe Blanchetas vineyard manager and Henry Boyer, her brother, as oenologist
