The vineyards of Chateau Rol Valentin are located in two separate areas in St. Emilion. About 40% of their vines are placed on sandy soils, north of La Gomerie on the way to Cheval Blanc. The colour has a ruby ​​hue, with purplish reflections. The nose reveals very concentrated notes of red fruits, with aeration, a wide range of aromas develop, including sweet spices and leather. The attack is frank and powerful, the substance is fine, the tannins are present and firm and the chew is velvety and suave.

Deep purple-crimson. Ripe, sweet and fragrant, ripe but not overripe. Juicy, incredibly concentrated, almost too much. Sip slowly. There’s a surprising shaft of acid on the finish – needs time to integrate. Tannins thick and soft. Good length.
