Château Laroque is a large St. Emilion estate famous for its stunning 18th century château as well as for the quality of its wines. It is owned by the Beaumartin family and was granted Grand Cru Classé status in 1996.
Its 61 hectares of vineyards (27 of which are used for the Grand Vin) are situated in the commune of St. Christophe des Bardes and it produces nearly 25,000 cases a year. The blend is predominately Merlot based and the wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months. In the best years it is packed with ripe and plummy fruit supported by a framework of supple tannins and balanced acidity.
Wines sold "In Bond" (including BBX) or “En Primeur” are not available for immediate delivery and storage charges may apply.
Duty and VAT must be paid separately before delivery can take place.
Now entering its eagerly-awaited prime, this strikes a perfect balance between classicism and fruit-driven approachability. Laroque is a sizeable estate, but less than half of its 61 hectares is deemed worthy of inclusion in this, the Grand Vin. It's a blend of 87 percent Merlot and 11 percent Cabernet Franc, with just a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon, from the estate's older vines, which are overlooked by one of the Right Bank's most equisite chateau.
