Château Rousseau de Sipian
Racey Group Directors Pension Scheme
Micronesia Holding Co. Ltd
Dominating the estuary of the Gironde, this imposing renaissance style Château situated in a superb enclosed park surrounded by vineyard, reigns over a vineyard of 15 hectares planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. The care and attention given to the vine have one objective, to produce a wine that is the expression of the terroir through the grapes that go to make Chateau Rousseau de Sipian.
Limited yields, importance given to the work of the vine and harvesting by hand are the criteria for making great Medoc wine. Such is the philosophy of the seller who, in 2000 together with his father, bought this enchanting Chateau on the outskirts of the Medoc with which they had fallen in love.
British by birth and passionate about French wines they carried out the necessary restoration and modernisation to ensure the continued renown of their wine. Their 2010 vintage received the gold medal in the « Decanter » world wine awards in 2013.
We were surprised by the speed with which the buyers decided to purchase this property. It was a real « coup de Cœur » just as it had been for the Racey family.
