Château Roudier Montagne-Saint-Emilion 2014, Bordeaux, France £22.00
This 3.7 hectare property is superbly situated on the plateau. The biggest parcel adjoins La Fleur and is 100m from Petrus. Since 2015 the vineyards have been in conversion towards organic viticulture. The vineyards average over 50 years old and the blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The Artemis Group investment here will drive quality even higher in the future.
Rich, ripe and luscious red berry and plum fruit on the nose. The palate is soft with Raspberry, Blackberry, Plum and Fig, Capsicum and Vanilla linger on the palate with alcohol warmth.
Grapes: 65% Merlot/25% Cabernet Franc/10% Cabernet Sauvignon
This is a fabulous match for roast red meats, rich braised dishes and game.
