Planet Bordeaux: Chateau Roquefort rouge, Bordeaux Superieur, 2010

Chateau Roquefort Wine Review From


“Chateau Roquefort is one of the three chateau-designated properties under the direction of Frederic Bellanger. These vineyards are situated on elevated soils on an escarpment in the Entre-Deux-Mers. That prosperous are between the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers that define and divide the region. This may be the best $8 you’ll spend on a wine this year.”


Chateau Roquefort 2010



Planet Bordeaux‘s insight:

This wine is made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is moderate in body, quite quaffable, nicely structured, and quite impressive for a suggested retail price of only $8. Not bad for a winner of the Challenge International du Vin Medaille d’Argent in 2012 as the Chateau Roquefort Blanc 2011.
