Château Romer was founded in the 18th century by the Montalier family. Through marriage to a member of the Lur Saluces family, who was quite famous for owning Château d'Yquem, the Romer estate was once a part of their vast holdings. Skipping ahead to the 20th century, Château Romer was purchased by the Farges family in 1911.

A few decades later, the Romer estate was divided up into smaller parts in 1937, which gave birth to what we know of as Château Romer du Hayot today. Château Romer remained the property of the Farges family for more than 100 years. From 1976 to 2002, the vines were leased to Château Romer du Hayot. The estate was purchased by Bernard Magrez in April 2012.

This was not the first purchase for Bernard Magrez in Sauternes, he already owned Château Latrezotte. He added to his holdings in Sauternes later that when he bought Clos-Haut-Peyraguez. The vineyard was however sold to Francois Janoueix, who continues to own and manage the estate today.


The tiny 3.5-hectare vineyard of Château Romer has a terroir of gravel with clay-based soils.


Sustainable farming


The wine is vinified in French oak barrels and is aged in 60% new, French oak barrels for 12 to 18 months before bottling.


Château Romer can be enjoyed on the young side with no decanting. In fact, it is delicious and quite a treat young, even on release! However, like all great wines, Château Romer is much better with age and does not reach full maturity until it’s between 9-20 years of age, or in some years, perhaps even longer in the best vintages. Best vintages are 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2007 and 2005.

Château Romer is best served at 14 degrees Celsius, 57 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. The wine will naturally warm in the glass, while it develops more aromatic complexities and fleshes out. Château Romer can be served with seafood dishes, especially shellfish, lobster, crab, and oysters on the half shell.

Foie gras is a perfect pairing with its natural sweet, salty and savory characteristics. Château Romer can also be paired with roasted chicken, veal, and pork dishes that are either spicy or prepared with a touch of sweetness. Spicy Asian cuisine, raw fish, like sushi or sashimi, and cheese, both hard and soft also make great pairings with Château Romer.
