Chateau Laroze 2012 St Emilion GCC
A light style of wine, with a bright, red fruit and herbal character or early drinking consumption. Good length-tamed tannins. Consistent style. Stylistically, it offers a consistent yet unique red-fruited and forward style, which is rare to come by in last decade of hot years.
VindeTert awarded 93 points and writes, 'The nose is aromatic and elegant. It reveals notes of boysenberry, plum and delicate notes of cassis associated with a touch of undergrowth, mocha and flowers. The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, fleshy, complete, and racy and offers a beautiful definition, a mineral structure, roundness, suavity and an unctuous matter. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of cassis, blackberry and delicate notes of strawberry plum combined with touches of liquorice, chocolate, tobacco, a few slight touches of caramelized oak and a discreet touch of vanilla. Tannins are fine and elegant.' (Edited).
