The Chateau Rollan de By Cru Bourgeois exhibits oak, tannin, volume, and density along with medium to full body, excellent ripeness, and a spicy, long finish.
Very attractive aromas of crushed berries, chocolate and light vanilla compliment the well-integrated tannins, and long, caressing finish.
It all started in 1989 when Jean Guyon bought 2 ha of vines with a wooden hut. The development of the vineyard is the reflection of Jean’s charisma and character… Always seeking to do better. At the beginning, this wine was made for friends, a garage wine-like. Facing a huge success, Jean decided to move forward. Selecting the best parcel of the plateau de By, he bought a few ha there and then for their soil characteristics. Our days the vineyard is 87 ha. The combination of the soil and merlot grape results in wines true to themselves: subtle, soft rounded with just the right amount of tannin. With a lot of efforts working in the vineyard, the result is an addictive chocolate cake like wine. You enjoy one glass, and you want another one.
