The 2015 Château Rol Valentin has a rich and opulent bouquet with plush blueberry and crème de cassis fruit, violets tucked just behind. The palate is full-bodied with dense but not jammy black fruit, quite structured with a dash of spice towards the powerful finish. It feels feisty and feral at the moment, but I suspect this will gain more finesse and cohesion once in bottle.
Neal Martin - eRobertParker.com #224 (Apr 2016)
A solid, direct wine in the making, showing dark plum and anise notes, with integrated toast and a lingering tobacco whiff.
J.M. - Wine Spectator
Rich, dark extract on the ripe and plush palate. Plentiful tannins provide an impressive structure. Firm, tight finish.
This is fantastic with density and finish and beautiful length. Powerful and rich. So much going on here. Harks back to the great wines of the 1990 from here.
The 2015 Rol Valentin is dense, powerful and unctuous, with fabulous richness and overall intensity. Raspberry jam, rose petal, cinnamon, mint and white pepper are fused together in a rich, totally seamless St.-Émilion with modern contours and fabulous overall balance. This late-ripening site in the Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse sector often yields distinctive wines. That is very much the case here. The 2015 is not a shy or subtle wine, but it is very nicely done in this style. Julien Lavenu is the consulting winemaker. Tasted three times.
