Château Rocher-Calon, Montagne St Emilion, Bordeaux

Tastes like: Strawberry. Raspberry. Cherry, Liquorice. Pot Pourri. Silky.
The Montagne (mountain) of Saint Emilion peaks at a whopping 97m... but what it lacks in eye watering elevation it more than makes up for in the quality and value of the wines it produces. It's still the highest point on the right bank.
The sky-high wine prices of Saint Emilion are enough to bring on a nose bleed but here in this neighbouring AOC the wines share a similar terroir, elegance and structure but come in at a fraction of the cost.
Chateau Rocher-Calon comes from some of the best vineyard sites and is a trademark full bodied blend of Merlot lifted by a touch of Cabernet Franc. Glorious!

Bought a few bottles as "table wine" over the Christmas period. Lovely wine with good balance can see this becoming a staple, will be buying more.
Bought a case of this and very pleased!
