Tasting Notes

The wine is deep, intense ruby in colour with violet hues. On the palate, sweet spices of vanilla, cinnamon and ginger entwine with flavours of dates and dried figs. A racy, incredibly full-bodied and well-structured wine with enormous density and power. The finish is long and lingering with excellent balance between fruit, tannins and acidity.

Producer details

Nestled between the communes of Saint-Julien-de-Beychevelle and Pauillac, the 190-hectare vineyard of Château Larose Trintaudon is planted upon one of the oldest layers of Médoc gravel, called the 'Pyrenean layer'. Situated on the borders of the Pauillac and Saint-Julien Appellations, it benefits from very similar growing conditions as its neighbour Château Latour. The soil is mainly composed of fine and sandy gravels on top of a clay-based limestone soil. The vines are 28 years old on average with a planting density of 6,600 vines per hectare. The team green harvests every Spring to ensure that grape bunches hang separately, allowing air to circulate around each one, and to control yields.

In the vineyard

190 hectare vineyard with fine gravels, sandy gravels and clayish limestone soil. Planting density is 100% at 6,600 feet per hectare and the average age of vines is 28 years old.

In the winery

The blend is made up of 47% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot. Traditional winemaking techniques were used with a vatting duration of 3 weeks. The wine was then aged in oak barrels for 12 to 14 months, 20% new oak.
