2007 Edouard de Rollat

Edouard de Rollat

The 2007 Edouard de Rollat is the premier wine of Chateau Rollat. It is perfectly balanced with big, round tannins, complex and sophisticated layers of flavor, and perfect acidity. The wine features deep currant and cassis along with other tones of dark fruit. It is earthy and rich yet displays the same silky mouth feel as Rollat. The tannin structure and acidity make this wine a long lived Cabernet that is drinkable now but will improve with age. The wine should be able to be kept for many years.
