The Chateau Rozier in Saint-Emilion and nine generations of viticulture in Bordeaux
With the purchase of the first plot in Saint-Emilion in 1775, the foundation stone for this traditional winery was laid and is now in the hands of the ninth generation of the Saby family, who passionately produce excellent wines in Bordeaux. Through numerous inheritances, purchases and sales, the family now owns a large number of plots, which they distribute like a mosaic throughout the Saint-Emilion area.
In the 20th century, Château Rozier was added, which has developed continuously, now covers 28 hectares and is also the company headquarters. Its name is a tribute to Abbé Rozier, who wrote the first handbook on viticulture.
In 1989 Jean-Bernard Saby bought Château Hauchat from his uncle, where the Fronsac and Bordeaux Supérieur appellations are produced. In 2002, the family inherited the Château Saint Andre Corbin estate, where three new appellations have been vinified since 2003: Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion, assembly Saint-Emilion and Lalande de Pomerol.
Today, the initially small family business covers more than 70 hectares, all located in Bordeaux and in the most prestigious appellations.
Quality and sustainability
Since 2011, production at Vignobles Saby has been converted to sustainable production as part of the environmental management system for Bordeaux wines.
The heirs of the family, Jean-Christophe and Jean-Philippe SAby, both oenologists, produce powerful and mature wines, combining tradition and modernity. Respect is the key word for these two brothers, who always pay attention to quality. Despite the variety of soils, the Saby vineyards produce wines year after year with a beautiful dark ruby red colour, with an intense nose of flowering red fruits that have the characteristics of the great vintages of the region.
