Chateau Rozier 2005
A Gold Medal Winner at the Concurs des Grand Vins de France Macon, one of France's longest established wine competitions, makes Château Rozier an execellent choice for high quality and good value buy. What makes Château Rozier stand out amongst the 200 plus wineries in the "Saint-Emilion Grand Cru" appellation? The answer is all in the family. With eight generations of winemakers, the Saby family has been producing wines since 1796. Now the transition is once again passed from father to sons, as Jean-Christophe and Jean-Bernard Saby takes the charge. The brother team (both oenologists) produces wines at their family mansion, which happens to be at Château Rozier. Merlot is grown on clay and limestone hills and sands, Cabernets are grown on warmer sandy gravelly soils.
Food Pairings for Chateau Rozier
The 2005 Bordeaux vintage had near perfect weather conditions and 48% less than normal rainfall, which was perfect for achieving grape ripeness. Our tasting notes from that vintage recorded that this wine was big, bold, ripe with good tannins. This 2005 is drinking quite well right now with developing black fruit characteristics in the nose and solid tannins and acidity.
