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

    The estate

    Situated on a limestone plateau, Chateau Laroque shines bright in the prestigious Saint-Emilion 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-Emilion appellation, the Chateau Laroque vineyard is planted in the famous clay and limestone plateau of the 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.

    Vinification and aging

    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 aging on fine lees was carried out in barrels and oak casks. A first racking took place after 4 to 6 months of aging, and a second one year later for bottling.

    The blend

    The Chateau Laroque 2020 was made with a blend of Merlot (99%) and Cabernet Franc (1%).

    The tasting

    The Chateau Laroque 2020 seduces with its intense floral and spicy aromas, its refreshing salinity and its silky feel.
