WINE ADVOCATE – 23 FEV 2006 – N°163

The Brunier brothers want to upgrade the Château La Roquète. They institude a luxury cuvée from a specific vineyard called les Pialons next to Rayas. However, the REGULAR 2004 ROQUÈTE has plenty of expressive pepper, smoke herbs, and strawberry and black cherry fruit, good acidity, medium body, and a lush, heady finish with plenty of glycerin and fruit. It is clearly a wine to drink during its first 7-8 yers of life.
