A red wine from Fronsac which reveals the quality of its terroir

The estate

Owned by the Hervé family, with its debut vintage in 1890, Château Moulin Haut-Laroque is located in the Fronsac appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux. Driven by the ambition of the Hervé family and equipped with a cutting-edge, modern vat room, the property is one of the jewels of the Fronsac appellation, producing wines that offer pure expressions of this great terroir.

The vineyard

The Château Moulin Haut-Laroque vineyard covers 16.01 hectares of vines, planted on shallow limestone soils. The vines, aged 55 years on average, are planted on clay-limestone soils which benefit from excellent exposure on steep hillsides.

The winemaking and ageing

Following a manual harvest, triple sorting with total destemming, and handling of the berries exclusively with a gravity-led system, vinification is carried out, without the addition of sulphur, in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. Fermentation takes place exclusively in barrels with extra-fine grains. Ageing lasts for 18 months in new barrels (40%) as well as barrels of one or two previous wines.

Blend

Château Moulin Haut-Laroque 2020 is made of a blend of Merlot (65%), Cabernet franc (20%), Cabernet sauvignon (10%) and Malbec (5%).
