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!
Nice ruby colour of good intensity, with very good clarity. Fresh and delicate nose of wild strawberry. The structure remains delicate on the palate, with very supple tannins. The wine is marked by its balance and freshness. The finish, with red fruit, is elegant and tender.To be decanted 1 hour before tasting.
