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

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.

Dark ruby; on the nose there's blackcurrant, black cherry, tobacco, cedar, and hints of mint and barnyard. Medium bodied, medium+ acidity, and soft tannins. Red cherry, blackcurrant, and earthy notes on the palate. I suspect this is peaking, so glad we opened this up.

This has good dark plum and mulled cherry fruit, with a dusting of spice on the finish. Nice firm tobacco edge adds length.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Rollan de By 750ml

Consistently better than its humble appellation, this excellent wine from proprietor Jean Guyon offers up plenty of black currant fruit intermixed with cedar wood, licorice and incense in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly concentrated and expansi...

A very ripe, suave style, showing modern mocha, licorice and black tea aromas that lead the way for a solid core of blackberry and plum, with a velvety finish. There's ample toast, but it's integrated. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Rollan de By 750ml

Solid, with a core of raspberry and steeped blackberry fruit inlaid with anise, apple wood and wood spice notes, all backed by a well-integrated graphite edge on the finish. Drink now through 2020. -JM Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Rollan de By 750ml
