The story started in 1885 with a plot of vines bought by Louis Roux in the village of Saint-Aubin. His grandson Marcel Roux, born in 1927, played a pivotal role in the development of the domain, extending the holdings to over 25 hectares in Saint-Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault and Santenay. He was a leading light in establishing the reputation and value of the Saint-Aubin appellation around the world.
Marcel’s three sons (Christian, Régis and Emmanuel) joined with him and created “Maison” Roux in order to enlarge the portfolio of appellations through buying grapes. At the same time, they continued to develop the domain in new appellations such as Rully and Mercurey in the Côte Chalonnaise, as well as the Côte de Beaune in Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Ladoix. And finally Côte de Nuits in Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot and Chambolle-Musigny.
Mathieu and Sébastien – the fifth generation – arrived in the family business in 2003. They focus on “the domain wines, bringing back to life numerous forgotten lieux-dits. The attention to these small details is scrupulous, and became a priority. A new period of acquisition saw the arrival in the domain of some magnificent parcels, notably in Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet et Saint-Aubin”.
In the last 15 years, the family has developed a very precise system of vinification from site selection. The ecological approach of lutte raisonnée – with as few additions as possible in the vineyard and winery – has helped the Roux family to protect the origins and terroir of their precious fruit, and to express it in the very purest way.
