La Cave de Roquebrun “La Grange des Combes” Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun red 2019. NEW to TOB.
50% Shiraz, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre.
The vineyards of Roquebrun are completely strewn with sharp and slate-looking chunks of a rock called “schist” and this striking landscape translates to a fruit character in the wine that you will never find anywhere else. Roquebrun is the “Grand Cru” zone of the wider Saint-Chinian district and the fruit here is gorged with plums and cocoa, licorice, blackberry jam, mulberries, cola and jubes, while the palate of this wine is full and soft with some feather light tannins that build very gently to a fine and firm polish. Won a trophy at the International Wine Challenge last year.
Drink now to 2025.
