Chateau St Roch - new vintages

2015 Chateau Saint Roch Kerbuccio Maury Sec....$17.99 
(We are the only place in town you will find the fantastic 2015 Vintage)
A more serious, structured wine than the Vieilles Vignes, the 2015 Maury Sec Kerbuccio is 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan that was brought up in 50% new demi-muids. Deep, rich, concentrated and full-bodied, yet always light on its feet and graceful, it offers fabulous southern France notes of roasted herbs, pepper, licorice and assorted dark fruits. It’s heavenly juice that tastes like it cost three times the price.
Rated 92-94/100 The Wine Advocate

2016 Chateau Saint Roch Cotes du Roussillon Blanc V.V....$12.99 
The 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes Blanc is a beauty. Made from Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, this medium-bodied, deliciously crisp and racy white offers lots of citrus and lime characteristics, a hint of minerality and bright acidity. It’s a perfect meal starter to drink over the coming year.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
