Wine Notes

Previously labeled as 'Chateau de Roquebrune, Lalande-de-Pomerol, France'.

Tasting note: Beautiful deep young red. Slightly spicy nose of red fruits. Fruit, suppleness and harmony are key themes on the palate. The finish stays fruity even though a faint impression of firmness is exuded. (29-Feb-2012) [Gilbert & Gaillard]

Far from being an officially defined or legal term, it is almost never used for wine-labeling purposes (although it occasionally appears on back labels). Its equivalent in the United States is Meritage, which is not only legally defined, but also a registered trademark.

  • Bordeaux, in the south-west of France, needs little introduction to anyone with an interest in wine. One of the world's most prolific wine regions, it also manages to rank among the most famous and prestigious.
