Roc de Levraut 2010 Bordeaux Supérieur Wine Review


Roc de Levraut wine review by

“A beneficial blend of 50% Roc de Levraut 2010 Bordeaux SupérieurMerlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Château Roc de Levraut 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.”


Planet Bordeaux‘s insight:

Owned by Remi and Roger Ballarin, the estate is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers, an area between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, in the south of Bordeaux. Château Roc de Levraut receives its name from the enormous boulders that are scattered through the area of rolling hills composed of clay and limestone soils.
