Saint-Chinian Roquebrun Appellation d’Origine Protégée
A deep, dark hue, this intense cuvée has vibrant notes of cedar, eucalyptus, black pepper and plum. Silky tannins bring its powerful flavours to the generous finish characteristic of its Roquebrun terroir.
We de-stem and then soak the grapes for seven weeks, creating unctuous depth. After fermentation, the wine is matured on lees in Burgundy oak barrels for a full 42 months, perfecting its exceptional, long finish.
Katherine Dart MW: "Hints of minerality support the fruit and acidity and the tannins are fine-grained providing both a foundation and framework. The finish is long. There is an elegance and sense of control here."
