Made from 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, this wine expresses all the elegance and finesse which is typical of this exceptional terroir. Powerful dark red fruits with a touch of spice, and toast and liquorice notes.

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
The grapes were fermented at 28 degrees for 12 days, and then allowed to macerate for a further 15 to soak up as much colour and flavour as possible. Then the wine was aged for 6 months, in 30% new oak, 40% in 1 year old barrels, and 30% in 2 year old barrels. After this the wine has benefited from several years ageing in bottle.
Chateau Valrose has benefited from its illustrious position in St Estephe for many generations. Being an unusual left bank property - due to its high proportion of Merlot grapes planted - it has singled itself out in this area, for producing powerful, fruit driven and elegant wines. It is sandwiched between several illustrious neighbours such as Chateau Calon and Clos Estournel, it has a prime position, in this historic wine producing region.
Chateau Valrose is on the plateau of St Estephe, one of the most celebrated vineyard areas on the left bank of the Gironde, Bordeaux's famous river estuary that divides the wine region in two. It is an exceptional 'terroir', where the combination of soils, climate and vineyard tradition all conspire together to produce wines of stand out quality and style.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years
