When the Roederer group bought the estate in 2003 they saw an immense potential in this unique terroir managed for generations by the Réaut family. Aiming to create an exceptional Bordeaux, they completely remodelled and replanted the 26 hectares of the property following the standards of the region’s Grands Crus Classés. In 2009 the Champagne-based group redefined its business strategy and decided to sell the estate. Led by Yannick Evenou, who was running Château la Dominique at the time, a group of friends and wine enthusiasts purchased the winery.
Château Réaut became the first-ever wine estate to be jointly owned by 6 partners from Bordeaux and 6 from Burgundy. This cultural mix and the outstanding work done in the vineyards make Château Réaut stand out among other properties. Its uniqueness also shows in its coat of arms, which associates the symbols of Bordeaux and Burgundy.
