Description

The freshness and aromatic finesse of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

The estate

Situated on a limestone plateau, Château Laroque shines bright in the prestigious Saint-Émilion appellation. This Saint-Emilion Classified Growth has been a stronghold in the region for more than 9 centuries and still today has the largest vineyard in the appellation.

The vineyard

Situated in the Saint-Émilion appellation, the Château Laroque vineyard is planted in the clay and limestone plateau characteristic of the Saint-Émilion appellation. The terraces and hillsides of the 61-hectare vineyard enjoy an east to west exposure and very fine, bluish, limestone clay soils. The old vines are subject to massal selection.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvested manually, the grapes were carefully selected in order to keep only those of optimal quality. Whole berries were vatted by gravity. The plot-by-plot vinification was carried out in small concrete vats, with punch-downs and pump-overs to ensure a smooth extraction. The ageing on fine lees was carried out in barrels and oak casks. A first racking took place after 4 to 6 months of ageing, and a second one year later for bottling.

Blend

Merlot (99%)
Cabernet Franc (1%).
