SAINT-EMILION Grand Cru Classé


CHATEAU LAROQUE

CHATEAU LAROQUEThe Château has belonged to the Beaumartin family for over forty years. This superb feudal castle of the 12th century was rebuilt under Louis XIV, thus earning it the nickname of "Petit Versailles". The vineyard covres 58 hectares of vines planted on a wonderful terroir of clay-limestone slopes on the heights of Saint-Emilion with excellent exposure to the sun. The harvesting is carried out by hand when the grapes are perfectly ripe, one plot of vines at a time. The wine is made in small vats so that each batch of grapes can be kept separate and the balance between the terroirs can be worked out to perfection. Vatting is long and closely supervised before transferring the wines into barrels for 12 months. The greatest of care is taken at each stage of the wine-making process to obtain the very best levels of quality.
The wine has a lovely robe, deep colour and we can note aromas of spices and black fruit. In the mouth, the attack is powerful and full. This is a most elegant wine with ripe, fine tannins, a long finish and excellent ageing potential.
