Domaine Rollin Père et Fils works 14 hectares of vines in five different communes in the Côte de Beaune in Burgundy. The domaine, situated in Pernand-Vergelesses (A village behind the Hill of Corton) was founded in 1955 by Maurice Rollin, but it was his father who had started to assemble parcels of vines, from which he produced his own wine outside work hours (like his father, he was employed as a vineyard worker by another winery in the village). Rémi, Maurice's son, has now been joined by his own son, Simon.

A touch reserved this, but I did find aromas of smoky sloes and damson, with a wisp of mint on top. There are tannins right from the front of this wine, starting in the supple, blackcurrant and cherry entry. Lovely rich, upright tannins and the acidity is juicy fresh. A daarkly fruited wine and a ripe and structured one, too. Mineral and fabulous.
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
