Château Rocbonnière is located in the extreme west of the Côtes de Castillon, on the border of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. This property belongs to the Bourrigaud family, which perpetuates its historical know-how since the 18th century. Pascal, who represents the 8th generation, took over the estate of his father Jean in 1994. In 1999, he acquired the Château Haute Terrasse and created a second label: Château Rocbonnière.
Terroir & Vinification
The terroir of the property represents 6 hectares well located on clay-limestone hillsides in the continuity of the slopes of Saint-Emilion. Its vineyard is close to Château de Pressac and consists of Merlot (58%), Cabernet Franc (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) with an average age of 25 years. The combination of soil and grape varieties makes it possible to produce aromatic wines, with a deep robe, typical of the appellation. The vines are worked in the respect of the tradition: size in simple guyot, controlled grassing, disbudding, harvest in green, reasoned pest control… The ageing is done in barrel of 1 year.
At the tasting, Château Rocbonnière offers a very aromatic wine. The rich, dense color pays a tribute to the dominant Merlot. The palate, greedy and complex allows the wine to be enjoyed in its youth.
