2012 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Chateau Laroze vineyard is located at the bottom of Saint-Emilion hill and village. The estate acquired in 1882, surrounds the castle and stretches over 27 hectares. The 2012 vintage is 66% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2012 growing season proved more favorable to Merlot as great Cabernets required a beautiful late-season. This Grand Cru from Saint-Emilion lacks strength. The medium-bodied wine is vibrant and smooth, and carries pleasantly fresh aromas. The finish is sweet and long.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Laroze put in a much better performance than I expected. It has a very composed bouquet, the new oak here deftly integrated, pure black and red fruit, a subtle undergrowth scent that becomes more accentuated with time. The palate is well balanced, quite classic in style. There is plenty of fruit here, more than it demonstrated out of barrel, but it is controlled, quite spicy, and gently fans out towards the very satisfying finish. This appears to have blossomed in bottle. Tasted January 2016.
