One of the owners of Chateau Rival is Stephan Graf von Neipperg who also owns the renowned Château Canon La Gaffeliere, Château La Mondotte and Château Guiraud. In 2007 he recognized the great potential of the vineyards of Château Croix du Rival and started to create outstanding wines in an upcoming region.

The Cuvée 261 from Croix du Rival is the first Bordeaux wine that is bottled exclusively for the BASF Wine Cellar. This 100% Merlot wine  was harvested from parcel 261 in Lussac-Saint Emilion from 25-year-old vines, which makes these grapes very rich and concentrated. A wine full of vibrant dark cherries and dark berry fruits. The barrique aging helps integrate the oak without overpowering the fruit. This is a full-bodied wine with strong 
tannins and a silky and ripe finish.
