Chateau Rollan de By Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Proprietor Jean Guyon and consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud continue to produce a wine that *over-performs its humble pedigree.* The dense blue/purple-tinged 2009 boasts abundant amounts of blueberry and black currant fruit intermixed with graphite and forest floor notes. *Full-bodied, rich, and pure,* it is ideal for drinking during its first decade or life.Robert Parker, Wine Advocate*We will notify you on arrival Summer 2012.*

Jean Guyon's determination to succeed in everything that he undertakes is just as deeply rooted as his vines at Begadan, in a clayey limestone hilltops. With his usual straightforwardness, Jean Guyon clearly acknowledges to have taken all the necessary financial and human steps to make Rollan de By a reference point in the Medoc. His ambitions, as a vine-grower are very precise : to increase the standing of this appellation with the help of the owners in this sector of the northern Medoc, far too often underestimated, and let people discover the riches of this terroir. Since then, Chateau Haut Condissas (in 1995), Chateau Tour Seran (in 2000) and Chateau La Clare (in 2001) have come along. These estates together with Château Rollan de By form a viticultural unity of very high quality in the Medoc appellation. Read less
