The ancestors, Henri et Alice Roux are at the origin of the vineyard in the family. Jacques Roux bought the Chateau Coustolle on the 11th may 1940. He is the developer of this estate where, for 35 years, he remained the master passing down his experience to his nephew, alain Roux from 1963. Alain and his wife Danièle took over the estate en 1974. The priority became : a cared-for corp, limited yields and the search for optimised quality through the selection of plots. In 1990 their sons, Xavier and Denis, brought in a touch of modernity whilst continuing to develop the quality.
