Winemaker Notes:
"This wine is named after a famous, crumbling castle that dominates the vineyard where these grapes are grown. Saint-Roch's aim was to create a dense and seamless wine with flavors or black cherries and violets, with an exotic and spicy finish. Perfect to sip on its own or with grilled steak or lamb. Blend: 65% Grenache, 35% Syrah"

"Chocolate, walnuts, ripe plums, blueberries, sweet tobacco, cassis and mint on the nose. Some ash. It’s full-bodied with muscular, broad and integrated tannins. Rich and chocolaty. Very polished."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92
"A blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre from black-schist soils, the 2020 Maury Sec Chateau Saint-Roch Kerbuccio is a terrific effort, marked by scents of cracked pepper and menthol, crushed stone, black cherries, black olives and black licorice. And yes, it's dark-hued as well. Medium to full-bodied, it's concentrated and intense but silky in feel, with a long, elegant finish. It's a terrific value in a hearty, but ready-to-drink red. Best After 2023."
About Chateau Saint Roch
At worst the Roussillon is seen as an appendage of the Languedoc. Slightly better, but still not great, is the temptation to see it as monolithic, when in reality there are a range of terroirs from the coastal plain, to the three valleys which succeed each other from the north to the south, to the unique spot where the Pyrenees meet the sea. While Jean-Marc is best known for his vineyards south of Perpignan he grew up near Maury where, as a teenager, he tended his first vineyard and made his first wine. So when the opportunity presented to purchase an estate here, how could he refuse?

Maury is probably best know for its aged, fortified wines, which means that it's really not that well known at all. When was the last time you had a Maury? Located in the Agly Valley, this region of the Roussillon is rugged, sheltered, and warm with distinctive black schist soils. These are the characteristics that make the terroir unique and in recognition of this fact as well as the prevailing trend in favor of dry wines, the AOC of Maury Sec was created. Maury Sec is darker, more mineral and more brooding in general than wines from the rest of the Roussillon. Grenache, not surprisingly, is the main grape along with smaller plantings of Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre. Saint Roch even makes a small quantity of white wine from Grenache Blanc and Marsanne.
