Château Soleil and Château Croix du Rival have become what they are thanks to strong friendships with Didier Miqueu and Stephan von Neipperg. Both estates are located on terroir typical of the Saint Emilion area. They represent the culmination of a long, painstaking, dedicated search for great forgotten terroirs in the Bordeaux vineyards.
In 2005, they purchased Château Soleil, an estate with a good reputation located on the best terroir in Puisseguin. Its twenty-hectare vineyard had always been considered one of the best in the appellation. They made major investments in the vineyards and winery, to enable the terroir to express its magnificent potential to the full.
In 2007, they purchased the 20-hectare Rival vineyard in the neighbouring village of Lussac, located on a clay-limestone plateau overlooking the rest of the appellation, including plots with vines over 50 years' old that promise to make outstanding wines. This vineyard had no winery and only produced grapes, but the new owners' ambition is to make great wines.Jetzt entdecken
