The 44 hectares of Château Saint Roch are located 35 minutes from the Mediterranean, in the Agly valley.
The castle of Quéribus, Kerbuccio, citadel of vertigo, laid by the Cathars on the sharp claws of the Corbières, watches over the north of the vineyard.
The terroir is composed of clayey-schist slopes with a limestone base and an altitude varying between 120 and 470 meters.
The wine displays a fine nose with notes of wild herbs. Fresh aromas of redcurrant and a powerful kick of kirsch. There is a distinct whiff of rosemary, and a little charred oak, with tight tannins that will get to grips with grilled meat.
