Château Rocheyron Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2017
95 pts James Suckling, 93 pts Wine Spectator

“This has a refined air to the nose with very rich black-fruit aromas and notes of cedar, earth and crushed violets. Tile and terracotta, too. The palate delivers a very concentrated impression. This is a boldly expressed wine, in terms of tannin and flavor. Super tight, concentrated and rich in every respect. Needs some time. Try from 2023.”- James Suckling

“Crushed plum, red currant and raspberry fruit stretches out, while judicious toast, singed anise and black tea nuances fill in the background. Offers a suave, caressing feel on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2030.”- Wine Spectator

Château Rocheyron is situated in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, just 3.6km from the centre of Saint-Émilion, on the edge of the celebrated limestone plateau. Peter is set on creating (or re-creating) a new norm – a return, in a sense, to the past but with all of the advantages of contemporary winemaking knowledge. He wants the wine to be as natural as possible and relishes in the advanced age of the vines, despite their limited yields. Farmed organically, Peter intends to move towards biodynamic disciplines, which is how he works in Spain. A firm believer that wine is made in the vineyard, this property is being run, in Peter’s own words, “like a First Growth” with meticulous attention to detail, rigorous vineyard management and ruthless selection.
