Château Rocheyron Saint-Emilion

185.00

Founded by Peter Sisseck, who started Dominio de Pingus in Spain’s Ribera del Duero, and Silvio Denz, the owner of Château Faugères in St.-Emilion, Château Rocheyron comprises 7-hectares of vines on a limestone plateau. The merlot vines are a mix of younger and 50-year-old vines, along with a prize 1.5-hectare parcel of 80-year-old cab franc vines. Rocheyron is fermented in cement tanks at moderate temperatures, and new wood is kept to about one-third. Classic aromatics suggest plum, cassis, blackberry, violets, and earth; flavors are fruity and chewy, with a tannic grip that asks for a few more years in bottle. 800 cases produced.
