2018 Château Laroque, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé is now available to order. Please enquire by email regarding potential availability at [email protected].
“Dark inky colour, ripe plum and blueberries combine with a lick of spice. Full and rounded on the palate with an opulence that is very more-ish. Long finish, very promising! 16-17/20 Points.”
Davy’s Wine Merchants
“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Laroque is a little closed to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal fragrant black cherries, wild blueberries and blackberry preserves scents with hints of crushed rocks, underbrush and violets plus a waft of Marmite toast. Full-bodied and jam-packed with bright, crunchy black and blue fruits, it has a firm line of ripe, fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing very long and layered. Impressive! Being aged in oak barriques, 50% new, the blend is 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. 95-97 Points.”
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, the Wine Advocate, April 2019.
