Of great refinement, the 2016 Red Château Laroque Saint-Emilion First Growth perfectly illustrates the loose and elegant style of this prized appellation. Especially in this sector where the limestone adds freshness and dynamism to the wine. The nose is ripe with abundant aromas of black fruits, spices, and noble oaky notes. The palate continues this aromatic complexity with a full-bodied and velvety texture and silky tannins. This is the ideal example of Saint-Emilion’s nobility and why its terroir is so much adored by wine lovers everywhere. Rated 94/100 by Parker and 93/100 by our Selection Committee.
