2014 Château la Roncheraie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 91

Dark in color, rich, filled with rich, ripe, lush fruits, jam, freshness and length. Not much is made, and it’s worth seeking out for the combination of quality and value. From 100% old vine Merlot, with low yields of only 17 hectoliters per hectare, the wine reached 14% alcohol. This wine is a Jeffrey Davies Selection Exclusive. 90-92 Pts
