Top wines in the Asian press

Château Rollan de By

medocTasting for the heritagewineclub.com, sommelier Andreas Larsson described this red from the Médoc as “beautiful and succulent”.

He said: “Lovely bright deep colour.

“The nose is intense and displays a classic Bordeaux palate of tobaccos, cigar boxes, spices, aromatic herbs, cassis and dark berries.

“Full bodied and generous palate, packed with dark fruits, very fine integration of oak, spicy and robust with a nice backbone of tannin that contributes to the length.

“A very persistent and pleasurable finish.”

“Beautiful, succulent and stylish Bordeaux that can be enjoyed young for its lush fruits but will continue to develop and display a more classic structure.”
