Owned by the Herve family, with its debut vintage in 1890, Chateau Moulin Haut-Laroque is located in the Fronsac appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux. Driven by the ambition of the Herve family and equipped with a cutting-edge, modern vat room, the property is one of the jewels of the Fronsac appellation, producing wines that offer pure expressions of this great terroir.
The Chateau Moulin Haut-Laroque vineyard covers 16.01 hectares of vines, planted on shallow limestone soils. The vines, aged 55 years on average, are planted on clay-limestone soils which benefit from excellent exposure on steep hillsides.
The winemaking and aging
Following a manual harvest, triple sorting with total destemming, and handling of the berries exclusively with a gravity-led system, vinification is carried out, without the addition of sulfur, in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. Fermentation takes place exclusively in barrels with extra-fine grains. Aging lasts for 18 months in new barrels (40%) as well as barrels of one or two previous wines.
