A word about the domain
When buying Château Saint-Roch in 1998, the objective was to apply their know-how from Château de la Gardine to develop the domain - and they have been very successful. They produce more affordable wines from Lirac and Côtes du Rhône appellations. Their wines are generally fruity and easy to drink, they all are a pleasure to drink and a good example of what a nice Côtes du Rhône can taste like. Definitely highly recommended.
