Château Rocheyron Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2017 –
“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. – James Suckling

Château Rocheyron Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2019 –

Peter Sisseck, Danish by birth, has certainly taken the road less travelled. He built a considerable reputation in Spain, settling there after having studied originally in Bordeaux. In Château Rocheyron, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, in partnership with wine aficionado Silvio Dentz, Peter has returned to his spiritual home with a unique opportunity to develop his long standing love for Bordeaux.
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.
