PRODUCER
At sixty-one hectares, Château Laroque would make for a mid-sized Médoc estate, but is in fact the largest in Saint-Emilion. A twelfth-century tower points to its Norman origins, while the rest of the château was rebuilt in spectacular classical style in the seventeenth century. It was purchased and saved from disrepair by the Beaumartin family in 1935, and with much necessary investment now behind them, they remain at the helm to enjoy the fruits of the château’s redevelopment.

VINEYARD
The vines are planted on clay-limestone slopes to the east of Saint- Emilion and average thirty-five years old. The grapes were picked in the second and third weeks of October. Only the best half of the vineyards are used for the grand vin. 61 hectares of old vines of mass selection (Merlots and Cabernets over 50 years old).

TERROIRS 
Plateau of chestnut and red clays on limestone with asterias, terraces (with the rising) and coasts (with the setting) on ​​fine blue limestone clays.

WINERY
The wine was fermented at 28-30oC in cement vats, with five weeks’ maceration, then aged for twelve months in French oak barriques with fifty-five percent new wood.
