The wine is a deep garnet color. An attractively even deep ruby hue and an inviting nose of black fruits backed by tobacco notes. Generously fleshy palate of ripe, soft cassis and dark cherries. Long and refined finish.
Château Rocher-Figeac was created in 1880 by M. Rocher, ancestor of the Tournier family who are the current owners. The property is located at “Figeac”, a place located to the west of St-Émilion and adjacent to the vineyard of the famous Grand Cru Classé Château Figeac. The family also owns Château Rocher-Bonregard in Pomerol, thus producing two very fine, small production right bank wines that
offer tremendous value and classic flavor profiles.
