Chateau la Roque Pic St Loup Rose 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

" The picturesque landscape surrounding the historic Château La Roque appears largely unchanged from how it must have been two thousand years ago. Ownership has changed hands many times since the Romans were first here, yet the soul of this special place remains in tact. Romans were said to have planted the first vines, and Benedictine Monks created the sturdy vaulted-ceiling cellars that still house the bottles today. Winegrowing resumed in the thirteenth century when the de la Roque brothers planted new vines. By the 15th century, another branch of the de la Roque family added glass blowing to the farm’s production. Today, Château La Roque is in the capable hands of Jacques Figuette, who has continued to convert to organic and now biodynamic viticulture, as planned by the previous owner and Languedoc legend, Jack Boutin. Jacques is guided by the talented Cyriaque Rozier, who makes the wine both here and at Château Fontanès. Though the property has responded to circumstance, its destiny seems irrevocably intertwined with its vines. Thirty-two of the Château’s eighty hectares are consecrated to terraced vineyard land with south-southeast sun exposure, on clay and limestone soils. This is unique terroir. Garrigue, the aromatic scrub brush that dominates the landscapes of the South, asserts its presence among these vines. Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, the noble varietals that Jack Boutin planted here years ago, make up the reds. The whites include Viognier, Rolle, Grenache Blanc, Roussane and Marsanne. In the wise words of KLWM salesperson and legend, Michael Butler, “Lay down a few cases of history.”" - Importer

Château La Roque is a Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux wine estate in Saint-Emillion, France that dates back to the 12th century. A single tower is all that remains of the original structure, which was rebuilt in the 17th century. Wine had been produced here throughout the centuries. As with many vineyards in the area, they suffered many stops and starts because of the Revolution, phylloxera and the World Wars, well into the mid 20th century. Many of the vineyards were replanted in 1962 and twenty years later in 1982, new Estate Manager, Bruno Sainson, together with his team, set about upgrading the whole site. In 2004, Xavier Beaumartin took over to further regain Laroque’s former glory. The estate boasts one of the largest vineyards in Saint-Emillion, with its best plots and oldest vines reserved for the Grand Cru Classé. These are planted with 87% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.  Read less
