Tasting Notes: With a beautiful deep color, this Saint-Emilion Grand Cru offers a powerful nose, with aromas of violet, prune, licorice, evolving on spices, truffles, and undergrowth. The palate is ample, balanced, long and fruity. It is a wine for laying down that improves over time. Tasted young, it will seduce with its aromas of fruit and its liveliness.

Food Pairing: Pair it with a flavorful mutton stew

The Domain: Château Haut-Rocher is a property operated by the same family since the 15th century. The name "Rocher" comes from an alliance between the ancestors of the Monteil family and the Rocher family, present on the premises since the 15th century.
Jérôme and Béatrice de Monteil took over the reins in January 2010 and make every effort to produce high quality wines, from the best terroirs of the St Emilion and Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellations. For this, they are helped by four employees and work in close collaboration with the oenologist Thomas Duclos and the wine consultant Hervé Briane.

The estate consists of 14 ha of vines, 9 in the St Emilion Grand Cru appellation and 5 in the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. The soil of the vines for the St Emilion is clay-limestone in nature with a south/south exposure on the hillside. The Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux benefits from clay-silty soil.

We find the traditional grape varieties of the right bank of Bordeaux: majority Merlot, as well as Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The farm has been in Conversion to Organic Farming since 2019, and labeled HVE 3 (High Environmental Value).
