Château Saint-Roch Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Roussillon Villages Chimères 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

“…A blend of Grenache with a bit of Carignan from Maury’s schist and chalk with Syrah from high-altitude granite slopes in Saint Paul de Fenouillet…Fresh and jam-like layers of black raspberry, rhubarb, and fresh cherry in the nose and mouth are tinged with resinous sage, rosemary, and lavender, while striking top notes of gentian and violet waft from the glass. For all of its saturating sweet ripeness and fresh berry brightness on a silken-textured palate, this also harbors low-toned roast meatiness, while piquant notes of toasted pistachio and almond, black pepper, cherry pit, and herbs keep its long finish far from any danger of succumbing to superficial sweetness. It will be worth following for at least 3-4 years, if not longer…92” WA 8-09

In the XVII th century, Roquemaure is a famous wine production center, proud and jalous of the quality of its wine, any blending with wine coming from other parishes is forbidden. In the XVIII th century, casks countaining the wine of Roquemaure, and the wine of Lirac, Tavel, Chusclan and Orsan as well, were branded with the letters C.D.R. marked with red-hot iron, to guarantee the authenticity of origin Since 1947 Lirac is A.O.C ( Appellation d'Origine Controlee) and one of the thirteen vineyards of the Côtes du Rhône.
