Château Romer-du-Hayot

The estate is located in the municipality of Fargues in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). It belonged to a Marquis Montalier at the beginning of the 19th century and subsequently experienced numerous changes of ownership and dismemberment through inheritances. The du Hayot family bought several parts in 1939 and brought them together under the name Château Romer-du-Hayot. A small second part remained under the name of Château Romer with 5 hectares in other ownership. The current owner André du Hayot later leased the Château Romer and now runs both properties together. The château was demolished due to the construction of a motorway, and the wine is produced on the family-owned château Guiteronde (Barsac). In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 it was classified as "Deuxième Cru Classé" (Sauternes). The vineyards cover 16 hectares and are planted with Sémillon (70%), Sauvignon Blanc (25%) and Muscadelle (5%). The noble sweet wine is aged in barriques for 12 months.
