Château de Roquefort

This vineyard, lying between Marseille and Bandol, boasts a large proportion of Grenache planted in a sheltered, rocky hollow, north-west oriented at 360 to 390 meters from the sea, where it ripens to perfection.This site may be wild and harsh for Provence, but its red wines are generous, full-bodied and opulent, and its rosés and whites wonderfully fresh.A trained wood joiner, Raimond de Villeneuve certainly cuts no corners with his raw materials. He likes to make wines full of elation, colour and fruit, and works his vines using natural methods which, to him, is only normal.At Roquefort, the 2003, 2004 and 2005 vintages met with great success and there are high hopes that future vintages will prove to be just as flavoursome.
