Description/ Tasting Notes

Deep purple colour with an engaging nose showing elegant floral notes that is well integrated with red berry fruit. Elegant in the beginning, evolving into a solid wine with excellent volume and compact structure that is made of fresh, polished tannins. Finishes balanced and persistent.

Winery Info/ Brand



The Roquette & Cazes project represents, above all, the coming together of two friends, Jorge Roquette from Quinta do Crasto andJean-Michel Cazes from Château Lynch-Bages.n 2002, these two families decided to set up a company to produce great wines that would be distinguished by the natural characteristics of the Douro Valley and by the experience of the Cazes, who have been producing wines in Bordeaux for nearly a century.

Region Info/ Origin



The Douro is one of the major rivers of the Iberian Peninsula, flowing from its source near Duruelo de la Sierra in Soria Province across northern-central Spain and Portugal to its outlet at Porto.Its landscape highlights three main aspects: the uniqueness of the territory, the natural relationship of wine culture with olive and almond trees, and the diversity of local architecture. Besides these aspects, the candidature highlighted the remarkable work done by man to build walls that extend the shale slopes and above all, authenticity and integrity of the cultural landscape.The Demarcated Douro Region, where the wines are produced corresponding to designations of origin "Porto" and "Douro", covers 250 thousand hectares, of which 48 thousand are occupied by vineyards, and form part of 22 counties.
