Saint émilion grand cru
A family jewel wonderfully located on the high part of the Saint-Emilion limestone plateau. The profile of its wines, its monolithic underground caves and its superb view over the Dordogne Valley together give Rochebelle a very special attraction. A real favourite with wine lovers!

Martial Musquin, a quarryman by trade, bought the estate.
Marie Marty, his grand-daughter and a war widow, inherited the family wine estate and passed it down to her two sons Raoul and Georges after the Second World War.
Philippe Faniest, Raoul’s son took up the torch and brought real impetus to Rochebelle with the help a few years later of his daughter Emilie, a qualified œnologist.
Rochebelle was promoted to the rank of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé.
The estate signed up to an environmentally-friendly vine-growing commitment and joined the Bordeaux Wines Environmental Management System (SME/ISO 14001).
