Chateau Rollat Semillon 2007

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Back on-line after a week in Boston and New York visiting family and friends.

Chateau Rollat was started by Bowin Lindgren who named the winery after his French ancestors. Lindgren recruited Christian LeSommer - wine master for Chateau Latour in the 80’s and 90’s - as a consultant. The results have been phenomenal. See a write up of Rollat's red wines in my Walla Walla Spring Release 2008 report.

Chateau Rollat’s wines can be somewhat difficult to find, so contacting the winery or asking your local wine shop to order some may be your best bet. However, they will be well worth the effort.







Chateau Rollat Ardenvoir Semillon 2007

Touches of lemon and yeast on the nose. The taste is marked by a hint of honey, a beautiful smoothness, and a crisp, tart finish. 13% alcohol.
