Château Roc de Bignon AOC Bordeaux Red - Technical sheet
Château Roc de Bignon
AOC Bordeaux Red
The estate has been family-owned since 1550. Some of the buildings date from the late seventeenth century. The name of “Roc de Bignon” comes from the place called “Bignon”, the original plot of land on which the estate’s vines grew. The name “Roc" (“rock”) became associated quite naturally with the place, as the vines are planted in limestone terrain. Moreover, the village of Frontenac is well-known for its quarries which produce Frontenac Stone. The present owner, Jack Saillan, has run the estate for 40 years.
A Bordeaux with a rich, complex palate evocative of blackcurrant and redcurrant, highlighted by delicately spicy notes. After a supple attack, plump tannins emerge underpinning this wine’s ample body, but still with intensely fruity aromas. A beautiful finish indicative of its prestigious origins.
A great wine for an informal meal to accompany grilled meat or a well-garnished cheese board.
