The Chateau Laroze, a Grand Cru Classe from 1955, is a 27-hectare vineyard in the Saint-Emilion appellation. Its blend is 65% Merlot, 27.5% Cabernet Franc and 7.5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Chateau Laroze 2015 has a beautiful red color. On the nose, the wine is only slightly aromatic because of its youth. On the palate, the wine is quite fresh with tart cherry flavors. On the finish, there are some oaky tannins.
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Laroze hits the ground running with vibrant, expressive red currants, black raspberries and warm plums scents with touches of violets, chocolate-covered cherries and lavender plus a waft of fallen leaves. Medium-bodied, finely crafted and elegantly styled with plush, come-hither tannins and plenty of youthful, exuberant red and black fruit layers, it finishes with bags of perfume and polish. Very classy!
