Château Rol Valentin 2016

Member Review by dynowine:

Falls more on the berry side of the rose spectrum. Nose of dried flowers, fallen foilage, light perfume, and indistinct red berry and melon. Slight acid bite with slightly candied ripe light fruit (oranges and red berry) with hints of wood and steel. Long finish with aged wood, steel, and ripe hard cheese fading. Dryish to off-dry. Body medium (slightly heavy for a rose), acid medium. 13.8%abv.

This wine is a bit of a chameleon; the colour is wonderfully dark and the nose is, one must admit, invitingly redolent of sweet, recently picked (and boxed) table cherries. There is a similar effect on the palate with a slight plumminess front and forward. The only detraction is possibly a result of the vintage: some distracting angularity and bitterness. This is not enough to ruin the experience though. 89 points.

Licorice and tar, with hints of ripe berry. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and dense tannins. Yet it's all in near-perfect harmony. This has a new owner and it's even better. -J.S Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Rol Valentin 1500ml
