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!
Very dense, dark ruby colour with nice garnet reflections. Slightly smoky nose, with intense notes of very ripe blackcurrant accompanied by nice roasted notes. The palate is complex, full and generous with fat and very high quality tannins of great elegance and finesse.
