The elegance of a round and fruit-forward Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe

Owned by the AG2R LA MONDIALE Group, the Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion Chateau Larmande has released a very successful 2018 vintage.

With archival records dating back to 1585, Chateau Larmande is one of the oldest properties of Saint-Emilion, on the right bank of Bordeaux.

Made from a blend of Merlot (81%), Cabernet Franc (17%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%), the Chateau Larmande 2018 is matured for 18 months in new barrels (60%), barrels of second use (30%) and amphorae (10%).

At the tasting, the Chateau Larmande 2018 seduces with its black fruit notes, evolving spicy touches. On the palate, the wine shows off a delicate, silky texture and already well-integrated tannins. With great elegance, the lively acidity of the wine prolongs its evolution on the palate, while offering plenty of freshness. A Chateau Larmande that expresses the greatness of the Saint-Emilion terroir. Pleasant to enjoy in its youth, the wine will also evolve perfectly in the years to come.

Parker : 92-94 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Larmande is blended of 81% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals wild blueberries, black raspberries and kirsch scents followed by Chinese five spice and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with vibrant black fruits plus loads of spicy sparks and a velvety frame, finishing with great freshness.
