Château Rol Valentin Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard near both Cheval Blanc and La Dominique has turned in an<br/>exemplary performance in 1996. A blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 3%<br/>Cabernet Sauvignon, it boasts a dark ruby/purple color, as well as a sweet nose<br/>of black currants intermixed with licorice, toasty new barrel aromas, and<br/>smoked herbs. Medium-bodied, rich, ripe, and hedonistically styled, this wine<br/>was made from low yields, enjoyed an impeccable elevage, and was bottled<br/>without filtration. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Issue 122)
