Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Vintage 2017 at Rosily will be remembered as a late harvested, moderately high yielding, low sugar year. The various components of this wine are all grown on carefully selected soil types that match the variety - the cabernet is from the gravelly top of the hill, the franc and merlot from the deeper alluvial soils close to the creek, and the petit verdot and malbec from intermediate soils suited to their moderate growth habits.
