Château Rozier Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Château Rozier is situated at the foot of the hillside of the same name, which pays homage to the abbot Rozier, who in 1760 wrote one of the first manuals on modern viticulture.
- The Saby family has been making wine on this estate for nine generations.
Varietal Composition: 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon
Elaboration: Hand picked grapes, 12 months in new and used French oak barrels
Tasting Notes: Deep purple color, the flavor rends a great freshness associated with red and black fruits, with a woody and slight vanilla edge. The tannin gives it a fleshy, smooth and delicious yet elegant taste.
