Chateau Larmande

Château Larmande is a St. Emilion Grand Cru Classé property that can trace its history back to the 13th century. For most of the last century Larmande was owned by the Méneret-Capedemourlin family - Philippe and Dominique Méneret invested heavily in the property, installing temperature-controlled, steel tanks in the late 1970s and increasing the percentage of new oak barrels used in the maturation process. In 1991 Larmande was sold to the French insurance conglomerate, La Mondiale.

Larmande lies north of the town of St. Emilion, close to Soutard and Cadet-Piola. It consists of 25 hectares of vineyards planted with Merlot (65%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).

Larmande's grapes are hand-harvested and are then fermented in steel tanks. The wine is then matured in oak barriques (50% new) for 16-18 months. It is bottled unfiltered. Guru oenologist Michel Rolland is now a consultant.
