The Malet Roquefort Family acquires The Château Puy Blanquet and reconnects with its history
The Domaines Comte de Malet Roquefort have just acquired Château Puy Blanquet, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
This 24-hectare property located in Saint-Etienne de Lisse has a pretty 19-hectare vineyard planted on a clay-limestone hilltop overlooking the Dordogne valley.
The Malet Roquefort family, one of the oldest in Saint-Emilion where it has been established since 1705, counts among its estates, Château La Gaffelière, First Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Emilion, Château Armens, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Château Chapelle d’Aliénor, Bordeaux Supérieur, and now Château Puy Blanquet, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
With this acquisition, the Malet Roquefort family is also reconnecting with its history, as Château Puy Blanquet has belonged to them for nearly a century and a half.
