"Jean Guyon produces clean and fresh wines, rather classic style with a well rounded finish."
The soils on the Left Bank of Bordeaux are predominantly gravel based in the best terroirs, which include Médoc, Margaux, Pessac-Léognan, and Pauillac. Of course the soils are not only created from gravel, the various types and sizes of stones resting on beds ranging from limestone, to clay, to sandstone, and other mineral and organic materials play an important role. The gravel soils allow excellent drainage, encourage the roots to burrow deep, help by reflecting sunshine, and radiate heat (which helps the grapes to fully ripen).
A Passionate Lineage
Domaines Rollan de By is one of the most important properties of the Medoc - located in the northern part, not far from the Atlantic Ocean. Here, Jean Guyon has chosen the best areas to cultivate each grape variety resulting in the following plantations - 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The aim is to give the best interpretation of the Medoc, obtaining the perfect combination of soils, grape varieties, and environment. Passion, expertise, and dedication are the bases of the achievement of the domain's goals: the pursuit of excellence, innovation and environmental protection.
