Tasting notes: The intense and spicy nose exudes currant, blackberry, plum, and mint. The wine is ample and offers very rich flavours of plum, black fruits, and vanilla.

The estate has undergone significant renovation over the past 20 years and its now planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the two varieties that fit perfectly to the soils of the vineyard. Chateau Roget harvests their grapes as late as possible, seeking perfect ripeness and expressive fruit.
