Château Rigaud

France, Bordeaux

Now run by Pierre Taix, Château Rigaud has been in his family since 1802. It is on a clay-limestone plateau, similar to the best sites in neighbouring Saint Emilion. The vines for the Cuvée Vieilles Vignes are over fifty years old. Everything is done with great respect for the environment - one has the impression of visiting Pierre's garden - and the grapes are all harvested by hand.
