Natalie's Score: 89/100

Loads of oak and smoke on the nose and palate of this robust Bordeaux red wine from generous oak barrel aging. The 2010 vintage was a strong one. This winery is located in southwestern France in the Graves district of Bordeaux where the wines tend to be blacker, deeper and oakier than other Bordeaux districts. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Pair with a rare steak. OTHER: Boasts a tobacco and roasted cedar frame, with a sanguine edge that guides the lightly mulled plum and red currant fruit. The supple, stylish finish lingers. Drink now through 2022. - Community Wine Reviews

Food pairings: roast beef, rare grilled New York striploin, dry-rub marinated flat iron steak.

Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep dark ruby in colour, dry and full bodied wine with a pronounced nose of black fruit; black plum, black cherry and a bit of black currant, with cedar, tobacco and vanilla. Structured tannins, integrated and fine grained with balanced acidity. In the mouth the cedar and tobacco are balanced with the black fruit. A good wine for roast beef and rare steak; very pleasant on its own. Still has lots of fruit!
The Pessac-Léognan wine region lies on the left bank of the Garonne, south of the city of Bordeaux. The wine region consists of 8 communes: Mérignac, Talence, Pessac, Gradignan, Villenave-d'Ornon, Cadaujac, Léognan and Martillac. Soils here are gravelly and well-draining. Château de Rochemorin belonged to philosopher and writer, Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu, in the 18th century. The red wine blend for the 2010 vintage of Château De Rochemorin Rouge was 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. - Community Wine Reviews
