Château-Larose-Trintaudon Haut Médoc 2010

SKU 02103


The first vines at Chateau Larose-Trintaudon were planted in 1838 by Henry Delaroze, mayor of Saint-Laurent, when he created a vineyard on the parcel known as the 'tènement de Trintaudon', a gravelly hillside perfect for Bordeaux varieties. Known for its supple, straightforward style for centuries, the estate has been producing a richer, more distinctive style of Haut-Médoc since the late 1990's, which still offers an incredible value to the savvy Bordeaux buyer. The vineyard is farmed with sustainable methods (which is as close to organic as possible) and is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. 2010 is a terrific vintage with excellent purity of fruit, balance and character.

Wine EnthusiastOne of the largest Médoc properties, this chateau always produces a reliable wine that is ready to drink soon. Soft and already approachable, the 2010 is no exception. Ripe tannins and a blackberry flavor meld into a round finish

Wine AdvocateA real winner from this estate, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot is widely available and generally sells for under $20 a bottle in the American marketplace. Plump, fleshy black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with some cedar wood, vanilla, and incense jumps from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, attractive, somewhat denser than usual style for Larose Trintaudon. Nevertheless, the tannins are sweet and the acidity low, so drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.

Wine SpectatorA pure beam of cassis runs along hints of warm stone, violet and red licorice, with a focused finish. Drink now through 2016. 70,000 cases made. -JM
