Les Hauts de Trintaudon is the second wine from Château Larose-Trintaudon, a “little brother” made from the same vines, the same terroirs and the same harvest… and above all, with the same exacting standards. It is in the cellar, following the selection of the most exceptional batches that will make up the blend of the first wine, that the second wine is born, and aged in vats, not barrels. With its magnificent ruby red hue, it is a deliciously elegant, smooth wine, crafted for immediate enjoyment, that will bring a touch of enchantment to every day.
Made from the property’s younger vines and with vinification at low temperature to favour fruit and the smoothness of the tannins.Ruby colour with a hint of tile red.The fresh red fruit aromas combine with subtle notes of coconut and tobacco from careful oak ageing.On the palate, roundness, fruit and a moderate tannic structure give an overall sensation of softness and creaminess.The finish is simple, soft and delicate.To serve as from the end of 2019, without decanting, and for the following 2 to 3 years.
