2006 Château Rol Valentin St. Émilion Grand Cru Wine Tasting Note


2006 Château Rol Valentin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 88

More interesting on the earthy, red fruit and espresso nose than on the rustic, bright red berry and forest leaf oriented palate, this is fully developed and should be drunk up over the next 4-5 years.

When to Drink Chateau Rol Valentin, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Rol Valentin better with at least 3-6 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour, or a bit longer, helping the wine soften to help develop the aromatic character.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Rol Valentin offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-18 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau Rol Valentin with Wine, Food and Pairing Tips

Chateau Rol Valentin is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Rol Valentin is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Rol Valentin is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.
