Chateau Rollan de By 2001 (review)

90 points

From Bordeaux, France.

Dark with considerable glycerol. Very dense small barrel French oaky nose. Follows through on the palate – this demands some aging. Quite burly.

For a plain Medoc this is pretty intense, and perhaps even classy. Worth revisiting to see if the points score I gave is really warranted.

  2. March 2007 – this is really a very beautiful wine now. Still very young, I can taste the new oak, but it is lovely with food. Glorious fragrant nose. Nice acidity, elegant yet substantial.
