“Fascinated by the wine and the envy for a big change I chose to settle down in Bordeaux, very fast I meet my wine grower whom I marry.This fate led to us to manage the family wine property located in Barsac, a domain that has
belonged to the family since the XVIIIth century. I follow up every vintage of the Château Roumieu with enthusiasm and love. I improve every day my most beautiful recipe: a balance of tradition, know how and a touch of modernity with a pinch of magic.”

reflections. An expressive and rich nose, with notes of dried and cooked
fruits with an evolution of spices and citrus fruits (peel of orange and
A lively, ample attack, with aromas of yellow and exotic fruits (peach,
apricot, litchi, pineapple). A big gustative balance. A long finish,
persistent supported by a spiced freshness.
The power and the elegance are enhanced by a mineral giving an
aromatic harmony.
