Château Larose-Trintaudon

If Château Larose-Trintaudon has succeeded in creating a name for itself as an excellent wine, vintage after vintage, it is entirely due to its taste quality. By expressing its strength of character without austerity but with suppleness and finesse, it pleases novices and wine experts alike, and is universally appreciated. At each blending, the cellar masters practice their alchemy, testing until they succeed in unveiling the wine’s true personality, a combination of intensity and opulence that expresses superb red fruit aromas whilst preserving aromatic freshness and purity. That is why, depending on the harvest and the balance of the grapes, the blend is slightly different each year. For, as everyone knows, subtle movement is the secret to perfect balance!

 

Tasting notes

Dark ruby colour with some crimson reflections, still very young. Nose of dark chocolate, mocha, very indulgent. The palate is powerful with tight and very precise tannins. Very good length with a remarkable aromatic persistence. Very great purity overall.To be decanted 1 hour before tasting.
