This wine has a nose of bramble fruit, cedar and a touch of tobacco. A deep red appearance, firm rich dry tannin and good length on the palate. Soft and rounded. A lovely elegant claret.

The Grand Vin of Château Rousseau de Sipian is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot coming from the parcels with the best exposure.   The grapes are picked by hand when they reach optimal maturity then vinified in accordance with the quality potential of each vintage.   Afterwards the blended wines are aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.  Finally, at the end of this period a meticulous selection of the different lots is made and the wine now finished is bottled.

A rich, ripe core of dark fruit, tobacco, leather and spices, cassis, plum and cedar too. A wonderful blend of classic Bordeaux styling with modern fruit purity.

Impressive generosity of flavour (delicious, rich dark fruits) with elegant structure, the greatness of the vaunted 2010 vintage is confirmed at every point from the succulent entry to the long, fine finish. Supported by a velvety bed of fine ripe tannins with a spine of juicy acid and liquorice spice, it’s approaching its very best drinking – released at 5 years old, it will only improve over the next 5 years.

90 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“This wine, which is a blend of the three basic varietals planted in Bordeaux – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc – is a major sleeper of the vintage and far exceeded my expectations, and that, of course, is all good news. Lots of red and black currant fruit, licorice, spice and soft tannins have resulted in a silky, opulently styled wine that far exceeds its humble origins and appellation. Drink it over the its first decade of life, although the position of Prince Robert is to release this wine only when it is showing some maturity, as their target market is largely consumers desiring immediate gratification and restaurants seeking similar qualities.
