Saint Emilion Grand Cru almost 50% off, but only for one day!
It’s the Chateau Roc de Candale Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
Saint-Emilion is known for some of the most renowned chateaux producing wines that cost hundreds of dollars each. Today’s wine does not come from one of those chateaux but it does shares its terroir with two of them, the nearby Château Tertre Roteboeuf and La Mondotte.
Not only that but the consulting winemaker for this wine is the famed Stéphane Derenoncourt known for his work with big name Bordeaux producers, especially on the Right Bank like Saint-Emilion.
The wine is also classified as a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru which has stricter production standards than the normal Saint-Emilion bottles.
Like most Right Bank Bordeaux it is made from predominantly Merlot (90%) as the variety thrives in the soils here, plus a little Cabernet Franc (10%). About 1,900 cases were produced.
The 2014 vintage we are offering today is not available on wine-searcher but the average price of other available vintages is around $30. Do note; however, that 2014 was a very solid vintage for the Right Bank, rated at 91 points. Many of the other sellers out there are offering the relatively poorly rated 2013 vintage (86 points) and are still at close to double our price!
Not to mention that the average price for a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru such as this one on wine-searcher is $125! (I’m not saying they are worth that much, just reporting the facts.)
Of course through today’s Insider Deal you won’t pay anywhere close to those prices.
For the next day you can get 4 bottles for just $67.99 or $17/bottle which is a discount of over 43%. Factor in our extremely low $5 shipping and your savings go up to 48%, keeping a total of $67 in your pocket.

From the bottle (using Google translate):
With its deep color, the Chateau Roc de Candale 2014 offers a nose of red fruits, blackcurrant and blueberries on a blend of woody and toasty notes. On the palate, aromas of raspberry coulis give it a velvety texture of very fleshy tannins for a fresh and elegant finish with notes of vanilla.
Wine is a natural product. If a deposit appears, it suffices to decant the wine to fully appreciate it.
Bottled at the Chateau
The Chateau Roc de Candale Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from 40 year-old vines. The wine was put in barriques in November of 2014 and bottled in September of 2016 and has been aging wonderfully there every since.
The 2014 Chateau Roc de Candale Saint-Emilion Grand Cru begins with a beautiful aroma that smells like one of my favorite places, a barrel room. It is full of cedar and other wood notes, spice, red fruit, maybe a touch of balsamic and more.
The wine tastes quite good and still seems quite young at this point. Very smooth with soft, velvety tannins and a wonderful round mouthfeel, it also has fabulous balance and good concentration on the fruit. Extremely well put together, the wine has good aging potential but is also drinking wonderfully right now. Light touches of savory spice, vanilla and tobacco lead into the dry, very long and very tasty finish.
What a fabulous wine! This one just really hit me right. This is 9+ and if you love wine from Bordeaux you don't want to miss this extremely low price.
