  • Rol Valentin is a Saint-Émilion with obvious appeal. Carried by the Merlot, it is a smooth and generous wine that can be drunk relatively young. It ages elegantly for 10 to 15 years. An exciting, modern wine.

    Rol Valentin is one of the leading vins de garage. The property was created by Éric Prissette, an ex-football player in the early 1990s. Under the advice of consultant Derenencourt and with a great vineyard next to Valandraud - the iconic vin de garage, Rol Valentin has managed to elevate the wine to the highest levels. In 2009, the property was sold to Alexandra and Nicolas Robin who are pursuing the great work achieved so far.

Tasting notes - Extract
(...) Vêtu de pourpre soutenu, ce vin impressionnant de richesse en extrait s'annonce par un nez retenu, mais promoteur, qui libère des notes évoluées de mûre et de vanille. (...) Source: Robert Parker (1/99)
