Château Rocher Calon is located on some of the best soils of Montagne Saint Émilion.
This wine is mostly Merlot from the right bank of the Dordogne appellation Montagne Saint Émilion. The vines average 35 years of age, and the plantations are on soils that include many ancient fossils, indicating that they were once under an ocean. The calcium content of this type of soil seems to be ideal for growing interesting-tasting wines. After harvest, the grapes are cold-macerated for 4 days prior to fermentation (this helps in extracting color and flavor from the skins); the fermented wine is then aged 18 months in stainless steel and cement tanks (no wood).
