Since 1620, the MABILEAU family has worked in the vines. In 1900, Rene Mabileau participated in the Paris Universal Exhibition.
Over 300 years later, inspired by his father Jean-Paul Mabileau, Frederic Mabileau also discovers the pleasures of cultivating grapes and making wine. The beginning of his wine adventure was in 1988 when Frederic Mabileau planted this first vines of cabernet france on a parcel, owned by his wife Nathalie, called Rouilleres.
From 1991, date of his first production of Rouilleres, to 2003 Frederic shared the winery with his father.
During this period, they shared their experiences, observed each other and sometime disagreed but only in the pursuit of the best product.And this transition time gave birth in 1996 to this fascinating cuvee Eclipse, the flagship of the domain. Until 2003, when his father retired Frederic had grown his own small estate to 10 ha (24 acre).
