CHÂTEAU FILLON


BORDEAUX SUPERIEUR
As its coat of arms, displayed over the entrance to its buildings testifies, during the 19th century this Château was home to the Compagnie du Soleil, one of the first insurance companies to cover fire risks. Founded by an Alsatian, Charles-Xavier Thomas, who also excelled himself by inventing the first industrial calculating machine, luck would have it that once again the Alsatian people took possession of the land to perpetuate the history of this beautiful estate. Further to the dissolution of the “Compagnie du Soleil”, the castle was sold and undertook wines production. Situated on the wine route which links Sauternes to Saint-Emilion, the vineyards stretch across a soft and undulating landscape that gives birth to rich and elegant wines. The vines of Château Fillon are planted at the foot of the hill of Launay, which is the highest point of the vineyards of Bordeaux. The estate stretches across a 115-hectare surface and is located 50-km away from the East of Bordeaux. Since 2008, the Alsatian company BESTHEIM started to run Château Fillon. Producing high quality wines, with an impeccable presentation and with a very good value for money/pleasure is the main target of the estate. Sustainable agriculture is practiced there, as long as being respectful of environment belongs to the value and the commitments of the company. Château Fillon proposes this Bordeaux Supérieur “L’Apogée”. This outstanding cuvee, as we have been told, results from a plot-selection of more than 35-year old vines, facing due south. The blend is made equally from Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot. A prestigious cuvee, very well matured, well-balanced, developing ripe blackcurrant aromas as well as musty hints. It is also colorful and full-bodied, with an excellent evolution.

DOMAINE DE ROSIERS


COTE-ROTIE
The Côte-Rôtie wine-growing area covers three towns: Saint-Cyr-sur-Rhône, Ampuis and Tupin-et-Semons, on the right bank of the Rhône, on very steep granite terraces covered with a silica-limestone layer for the Côte Blonde and a clay and iron oxide layer for the Côte Brune. The climate is moderate Mediterranean, dry and hot in summer and with regular rainfall in the other seasons. There are around 200 hectares of vineyards set on terraces with 40% slopes, divided into: Côte Brune (clay, dark-coloured soil) producing very firm red wines with slow development and very good ageing potential (Vaillères, Côte Rosier, Turque, Pommière, Chevalière, Côte Boudin), and Côte Blonde (lighter soil) giving more supple wines (La Mouline, Châtillonne, Grande Plantée, Grands Cols). On this 7-hectare estate, you can try the very good Côte-Rôtie (the vintage 2007 received a silver medal with the Competition of Vins d' Ampuis), made with long vatting and a minimum of 15 months' maturing in oak barrels, with a fine deep garnet-red colour and aromas of spices, ripe red fruit and violets. A very harmonious wine for laying down, well worth waiting for.
