Aroma perfumey. Red fruits of raspberry, cherries. Some licorice. Subtle tobacco at the end. Paired nicely with foie GRAS, squab, lamb. Elegant but a bit short at the finish.

This was one of the business class wines served on 2 recent air france flights, and was memorably enjoyable. I didn't expect to find it in this $30 price range, however. At $15-18 it would be an excellent buy.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90Readers looking for a cru bourgeois made like a classified growth should check out this offering from proprietor Jean Guyon and consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. The 2005 is a beautifully pure, medium to full-bodied effort displaying notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco interwoven with cedar, black currant, white chocolate, and a hint of new saddle leather. Enjoy this charming, seriously endowed Medoc over the next 12-15 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Since 1989, Rollan de By has found its style. On one hand, the terroir allows it to obtain well-bred and subtle wines and on the other hand, the work carried out in the vineyard and on the wines takes place with the greatest respect for the practices of the Medoc. The grape varieties planted are dominated by Merlot, providing wines with a fat and rounded character and the meticulous ageing magnifies all of their complexity. Jean Guyon, surrounded with well-known consultants as Alain Raynaud, continues the work he star- ted when he bought this domain, in order to stay at the heart of the Bordeaux elite.
