Florent Guinjard

CHATEAU DE ROQUEBRUNEFlorent GUINJARD is a child of Bordeaux. Fact. With his strong passion for wine, it is his heartfelt wish to share it with the greatest amount of people possible. More than anything, he likes to discover the amazing diversity of the wines produced at his estate. In charge of the winery, which has belonged to his family since 1880, he carries on the family tradition while continuing to progress his wine making techniques year after year. And with the advice from best winemakers in Bordeaux he offers a top quality wine at an accessible price. His passion: to produce fruity wines, fine wines, and far from oaky. His trademark: fruit. Discover this Lalande-de-Pomerol cuvée Reine 2016, really superb, dense and well fleshy, which combines color and structure, with these characteristic notes of cherry and humus, robust, with mature tannins, powerful and tasty mouth, and excellent guard. It is the same for its 2015, with the nose of ripe cherry, with scents of currant and leather, is a generous and harmonious wine, of intense carmine color, and develops a persistent mouth with these notes of spices and blueberry, with nuances of smoke. The 2014, has aromas of macerated fruit and spices, a beautiful shade of garnet, a dense wine on the nose as in mouth, combining finesse and framing, with tannins both rich and silky, of excellent evolution. Beautiful 2012, with a deep ruby colour, a very harmonious wine, with a nose of raspberry and violet and a hint of spices, fleshy on the palate. The 2011, ample and rich on the nose as in the mouth, is of a beautiful balance, fat, with melted tannins, where marry the cherry and humus, a very nice wine. Superb 2010, with notes of ripe red fruit (blackcurrant) and sweet spices (cinnamon), well fleshy, of great intensity, with tasty and powerful tannins at the same time, and is enjoyed on a saddle of lamb with tarragon blinis or mushroom goose.
