Name: Chateau La Rose Perrière Address: Lussac (France) Web Site: http://www.chateau-laroseperriere.com/en/
Château La Perrière is located in the commune of Lussac. Monks established a monastery here in the Middle Ages and were the first to plant vines. The estate owes its name to an eponymous stream, which in turn takes its name from the word pierrière, meaning rock quarry. There are currently 14 hectares of vines that benefit from a well-drained clay-limestone subsoil. Jean-Luc Sylvain, a well-known cooper from Bordeaux's Right Bank, bought La Perrière in 2003 and shortly thereafter set about renovating the cellar, storage area, and vineyard.
