Planet Bordeaux:  Chateau Roquefort rouge, Bordeaux Superieur, 2010 | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

“This may be the best $8 you’ll spend on a wine this year.

Chateau Roquefort is one of the three chateau-designated properties under the direction of Frederic Bellanger. These vineyards are situated on elevated soils on an escarpment in the Entre-Deux-Mers, that prosperous are between the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers that define and divide the region.”

Planet Bordeaux: Chateau Roc de Levraut rouge, Bordeaux Superieur, 2010

Planet Bordeaux: Chateau Roc de Levraut rouge, Bordeaux Superieur, 2010 | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

“A beneficial blend of 50% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 is in the classic structured style that shows red and black fruit, a touch of cassis, that mixture of dark berry and sage-like herbal musk so prevalent in Bordeaux reds, and a lovely plump blueberry from the Cabernet Franc. The tannins are noticeable, but don’t dominate the wine, suggesting instead that there will likely be a few years of aging capacity here.”
