Château de Rochemorin Red

Château de Rochemorin belonged to the great philosopher and writer Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu, in the 18th century. Among other famous works, he was the author of the "Persian Letters". Montesquieu was a fine ambassador for the red wines of Rochemorin among his friends, acquaintances and the notables he met during his trips throughout Europe, never forgetting to praise the beautiful complexity and mineral characteristics of his wine, so typical of the Graves terroir. Its beautiful aromatic expression, accompanied by a well-balanced and elegant palate make this one of the most reliable wines in the appellation, while remaining very affordable.


label château de Rochemorin red 2007
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 60% / Merlot 40%.

Weather

2007 was cool and wet from May to August, and not particularly conducive to ripening for the red wine varieties. A beautiful month of September – warm and relatively dry – meant that the grapes could be picked over a long period at perfect ripeness.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Medium-deep garnet-red colour.

Nose

Ripe red fruit aromas such as redcurrant on the nose, which opens up over time to reveal smoky, forest floor aromas.

Mouth

Very attractive on the palate thanks to freshness, lightness and lively acidity. The oak is marvellously complemented by delicate spicy flavours such as black pepper and star anise. The tannin gives body to the wine. (Johanna Dayer - July 2013)

Ratings and reviews

Gault et Millau :

This 2007 Rochemorin is concentrated and intense, with an expressive nose of fruit and spice, along with roasted nuances. Complex, rich, and smooth on the palate with some musky overtones and tannin that is already well-textured. Beautiful balance and finesse. Refreshing and very drinkable. Ideal with grilled meat and oily fish: a wonderful, tasty match.

Concentrated and intense, with an expressive nose blending fruity aromas, spices and toasty notes. The palate is complex, subtle, rich, a trifle musky, with mature tannins.

Lots of red cherry and green pepper aromas with a pleasant freshness. The structure is firm and backed up with red and black fruit characters, fresh acidity and very smooth tannins. A pleasant wine for short-term cellaring. From 2011.

from 13.00 to 15.00 / 20

Fruity, balanced, close-knit, ample texture and excellent balance, an attractive wine with aging potential.
