Chateau Laroque is a large St. Emilion estate famous for its stunning 18th century chateau as well as for the quality of its wines. It is owned by the Beaumartin family and was granted Grand Cru Class status in 1996.
It's 61 hectares of vineyards (27 of which are used for the Grand Vin) are situated in the commune of St. Christophe des Bardes. The blend is 99% Merlot with the balance as Cabernet Franc and the wine is aged in oak barrels for at least 12 months. Situated on the right bank of Bordeaux, the region of Saint-Emilion can boast of producing the most diverse range of styles, partly due to differences in soil types, from gravel to limestone to sand, but also thanks to production variations and winemakers looking to make their mark.
This wine is a 99% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc.
Deep garnet-purple, the 2017 Laroque simply sings of crushed blueberries, black cherries and black raspberries with touches of lilacs, Indian spices, unsmoked cigars, iron ore and espresso. Medium to full-bodied with wonderful concentration, firm, very finely pixelated tannins and superb freshness lifting the densely packed fruit, it has very long mineral-laced finish.
