La Petite Roque Bordeaux Magnum 2019: A Savoury Delight from Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux (150cl)

Uncorking a Legacy: The Allure of La Petite Roque

At The General Wine Company, we take pride in curating exceptional wines that embody both quality and value. La Petite Roque Bordeaux Magnum 2019 is a prime example. This delightful red from the Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux appellation in France is a testament to the rich history and passionate wine making of Chateau La Petite Roque.

As the second wine of the esteemed Chateau Monconseil Gazin, La Petite Roque boasts a heritage dating back to 1894. The Baudet family, now in its fifth generation, continues to craft exceptional wines using meticulous methods and a deep respect for tradition.

A Terroir of Distinction: Where Clay Meets Limestone

The vineyards of La Petite Roque bask in the sunshine near the charming village of Plassac. Here, vines flourish in a unique terroir composed of clay-limestone soils with a stony subsoil. This exceptional drainage allows the roots to delve deep, drawing vital nutrients and minerals that contribute to the wine's complexity.

Aromatic Impressions: A Symphony of Sweet and Savoury

The 2019 La Petite Roque Magnum greets the nose with an enticing bouquet. Sweet aromas of chocolate and vanilla mingle effortlessly with rich, dark fruit notes. Hints of earth and subtle savoury nuances add a touch of complexity, creating a truly captivating first impression.

On the Palate: A Balanced Dance of Flavour

The first sip of La Petite Roque Magnum reveals a wine brimming with character. The initial sweetness of the fruit gives way to a core of juicy acidity, supported by well-integrated tannins that lend structure without overwhelming the palate. The finish is delightfully long, leaving a lingering echo of the wine's harmonious blend of flavours.

Food Pairings: A Culinary Canvas for La Petite Roque

La Petite Roque Magnum's versatility makes it a fantastic choice for a variety of culinary delights. Here are some food pairings that will elevate your dining experience:

  • Roast Lamb: The juicy acidity of La Petite Roque cuts through the richness of roast lamb, while the tannins complement the savoury notes of the dish. Consider pairing it with rosemary-infused lamb for a truly harmonious experience.
  • Grilled Steak: The bold flavours of grilled steak find a perfect match in La Petite Roque's robust character. The wine's tannins stand up to the richness of the meat, while the fruit notes add a touch of sweetness that balances the savouriness.
  • Hearty Vegetarian Dishes: Don't be fooled by La Petite Roque's red hue! This wine pairs beautifully with rich vegetarian options like lentil stews, mushroom bourguignon, or roasted vegetables with balsamic glaze. The earthy and savoury notes in the wine complement the depth of flavour in these dishes.
  • Cheese Platter: La Petite Roque Magnum is a wonderful companion to a selection of cheeses. Opt for semi-firm cheeses like Gouda, Gruyere, or Comté, where the wine's fruit and tannins can enhance the creamy textures and complex flavours.

The Magnum Advantage: Celebrating Special Occasions

Presented in a magnum format (1.5 litres), this La Petite Roque is perfect for sharing with friends and family. The larger bottle not only creates a striking centrepiece but also allows the wine to mature slightly in the bottle, potentially enhancing its complexity. Whether you're hosting a celebratory dinner or simply enjoying a special occasion, La Petite Roque Magnum is sure to impress.
