With archives testifying to its existence from 1585 onwards, Chateau Larmande is one of the oldest properties in Saint-Emilion, on the right bank of Bordeaux. This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe is owned by the AG2R LA MONDIALE Group.
Chateau Larmande reigns over a 16.72-hectare vineyard whose vines, 25 years old on average, are planted in clay-limestone soils made up of ancient sand, clay and silica.
Vinification and aging
Harvested manually, the grapes were rigorously sorted before being transferred by gravity into thermoregulated parallelepiped tanks. Over an 18-month period, 60% of the aging was carried out in new oak barrels, 30% in second-fill barrels and 10% in amphorae.
The Chateau Larmande 2020 was made from a blend of Merlot (77%), Cabernet Franc (19%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (4%).
