DESCRIPTION
IN A NUTSHELL
PRODUCT REVIEWS

One of our strongest-selling wines for the past two vintages (indeed we ran out of wine very fast indeed both times), nowadays Château Laroque consistently punches - and scores - well above its weight.

David Suire (of Château Beauséjour-Duffau-Lagarosse fame) and the team at Château Laroque have done it again in 2020, with a classy offering that shows all the richness and power of merlot in this right-bank friendly vintage, yet with an impressive freshness, notes of red fruit and a minerality on the finish one would expect to find in much pricier clarets.

Since 2015 M. Suire has been leading the estate in this direction, aiming for an ever-more elegant rendition of the estates superb fruit from the St Emilion limestone plateau, and it certainly is paying dividends.

Critic reviews:
"It has a very composed bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry and crushed limestone scents, beautifully defined with very well integrated oak. You could just nose this all day. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, blueberry and a judicious pinch of black pepper. This is very harmonious and as fresh as a daisy. Possibly the best Laroque that winemaker David Suire has overseen to date."
93-95 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

"Deep crimson but not impenetrable. Mellow, rather unflashy nose with well-integrated acidity and a certain mineral element. Really lively and fresh and rather sleeker than some of the more exhibitionistic St-Émilions. Obviously a long-term, and rather exciting, bet. Bone-dry finish and a fair amount of ripe tannin but not lean or drying, and with a persistent, silky finish. Rather sophisticated."
16.5pts, James Lawther MW, www.jancisrobinson.com

"This is really focused and linear with tight, minerally tannins that are polished and energetic. Its medium-to full-bodied with dark and blue fruit in the center palate. Long and focused."
94-95pts, James Suckling
