2018 Château Rochebelle  (St. Émilion) 88

Medium-bodied, earthy with a strong espresso and licorice nose, the red fruits come through in the round finish. You can drink this on release. 87-89 Pts

2016 Château Rochebelle  (St. Émilion) 86

Leafy forest notes and red fruits lead to a medium bodied, forward, soft, easy to understand, crowd-pleaser of a wine.

2015 Château Rochebelle  (St. Émilion) 87

Forward, soft and already easy to drink, the red berry dominated wine shows some secondary nuances already with its spice, thyme and leafy green notes. This should be enjoyed early, to allow for all the fruits to show well.

2009 Château Rochebelle  (St. Émilion) 87

Medium bodied, soft in texture, this forward St. Emilion delivers licorice, black raspberry, cherry, earth and a hint of vanilla bean in the nose. Easy to drink, this should be enjoyed in its first 5-8 years.

2005 Château Rochebelle  (St. Émilion) 88

Medium bodied, lacking the concentration found in many of the wines from this vintage, hints of licorice, red with black fruit and earth with coffee bean, this is already open. It's not a wine that's going to make old bones. I'd drink over the next 5 years or so.

2000 Château Rochebelle  (St. Émilion) 88

Fully mature, medium bodied, correct, but unexciting, the nose is better than the palate here, where you find a bright, earthy wine with rustic tannins and a licorice infused, mushroom and plum finish.
