André Lurton bought de Rochemorin in 1973, an estate with vines since the 16th century. This is an aromatic wine, perfumed with blackberry tones. It has plenty of fresh fruit, soft tannins and ample acidity. The structure plays a supporting role—dry while also showing some richness. Drink from 2019.
