Red wine

Chateau Rocheyron, St Emilion Grand Cru 2016

RRP £70.80

Superb bright nose with some sappiness still. Fine dark fruit on the palate with a hint of blackcurrant leaf, earth and minerality. It’s concentrated with lively acidity and freshness and fine, dry, chalky tannins. Sisseck sets great store by texture: the tannins may be fine but they have powerful grip, giving the whole wine a linear precision and tension. Excellent, rich, beautifully-made.
