Chateau Les Rosiers Bordeaux 2016

18-May-2018

In New Zealand, with Pinot Noir as our predominant red variety, and Syrah as one with great promise, we tend to forget that the Bordeaux varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon reign supreme with a global perspective. The top properties of Bordeaux rule the roost in prestige. In the same vein, it is also easy to forget that below the very top levels of cru classé Bordeaux, there is a mass of serviceable wines made from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that is both affordable and very attractive drinking. Thank goodness some of our importing distributors are on the lookout for these wines for our market. Here, I review the 2016 Ch. Les Rosiers Bordeaux Rouge, brought into New Zealand by Kahurangi Wine Distributors. The wine comes from a 76 ha property in Soussac, owned by the Jolivet family since 1981, planted to 60% Merlot and 20% each Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. www.kahurangiwine.com
