Domaine Roux Père & Fils
Family-owned and -operated since 1885, Domaine Roux Père & Fils is one of the top 10 largest landholders in the Côte d’Or of France, with 70 hectares under vine.
Marcel Roux acquired Domaine Roux’s Saint-Aubin property in 1943. Here, he set up the winery and the village that has served as the family’s home ever since. In the 90s, the winery expanded its operations to meet growing production demands, supplementing its historic cellar -- which houses 300 barrels -- with a modern cellar that stores an additional 1,200 barrels.
With steadfast attention to detail, Domaine Roux combines valuable traditions with the most advanced technology to produce high-quality wines. Its vines are planted exclusively on eastern and southern facing slopes, benefiting from premium exposures. All grapes are harvested by hand at optimal ripeness, which sometimes requires multiple passes through the vineyards. Many of the wines undergo malolactic fermentation during maturation in French oak barriques exclusively for a minimum of six months.
The Roux family is an authority on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, producing wines from numerous appellations throughout the Côte d’Or. Today, the daily operations of the winery are overseen by the fifth generation of the family: Matthieu serves as winemaker, while Sebastien manages the exportation.
