Description

Château Vieux Rivallon has been operated by the same family for 5 generations. Since 2015 it has been managed by Alexandre Plocq. In his words – “Coming from a family of winegrowers, my most distant memories take me back to Saint-Emilion. Every summer I spent time with my grandfather, who introduced me to viticulture and passed on his passion to me. My studies led me to Paris, but I soon felt the need to reconnect with my roots, and in 2015, I took up the challenge of returning to Saint-Emilion to take over the family estate. Being a winegrower is essential for me, I love this humble relationship with nature, this inexhaustible richness made of interactions between men, a plant and a terroir.” Situated in the world famous area of Saint-Emilion Alexandre farms 20 hectares of vines not far from the town medieval walls. The plantings consist of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec.

A mature example of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, this wine is an absolute steal at this price. At this stage in it’s life it is showing savory notes of leather, cedar box, and tobacco. Brick garnet in color, once ripe red fruits have evolved into flavours of dried red currants and dried plums. A touch of balsamic on the finish lingers on the developed finish.
