Owner of Château Rollan de By, Jean Guyon is one of those Bordeaux characters that everyone has got an opinion on, but the excellence of his wine is undisputed. When he bought the property in 1999, there were just 2ha under vine here; today he has almost 100ha. Following renovation work, there are now six rooms available on a chambres d’hôtes basis in an 18th century chartreuse building located just next to the estate. The very well respected Château Haut Condissas is also part of the Guyon stable, so do your best to locate a bottle while you’re staying here.

Useful information: Rooms from €150 including breakfast.
