When he bought Château Rollan de By, a small property of two hectares in Nord Médoc, in 1989, Jean Guyon embarked on the greatest challenge of his life: producing wines that he wanted to be perfect. And it is a challenge he has won! Nearly three decades later, his vineyard covers 185 hectares and the purchase of other Châteaux has given rise to “Domaines Rollan de By – Jean Guyon”, a name that is today synonymous with excellence.
Jean-Luc Marteau, winemaker at Domaines Rollan de By – Jean Guyon since 1999, now implements the expertise he acquired in Northern Medoc, on the other side of the river. He bought Chateau Tour Perey, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru estate in 2011. In 2017, he starts a partnership with Médoc owner Jean Guyon and buys adjacent estate Chateau La Fleur Perey. Both estates become one (17 ha), exactly like it used to be decades ago, when both estates were belonging to the same family.
