|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot|
65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot. A six-hectare property owned by Éric Léglise, who also owns Château le Coteau. You might think that you don't what to drink anything as young as a 2017, but it would be a mistake, because this wine is open, generous, aromatic, spicy and with a lovely fine-grained, velvet-tannined dry appeal which makes it seem much more mature than its years, despite the youthful vigour. It really has the class of Margaux wines that are much more expensive. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 L&S (Jul 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Château Laroque (Margaux)
Château Laroque is in Arsac, and its six hectares of vines neighbour those of Grand Crus such as Château Rauzan Ségla, Château Prieuré Lichine, Château du Tertre, Château Giscours and Château d’Issan. It is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It is under the ownership of Éric Léglise, who also owns Château Le Coteau.
The vineyard is all worked by ploughing and no insecticides or herbicides are used. All the harvesting is by hand, and the wine is made in traditional fashion, with daily pump-overs during the 8-10 days of fermentation. The wine then stays on the skins for around three weeks before ageing in a mix of tank and barrel.
Bordeaux truly comes into it's own at Christmas and this selection from across the region will definitely delight. From the joyous pure Merlot of Chateau Lauriol through to the slightly more grown up feel of the Chateau Petit Bocq, there is plenty to get your teeth into. They would provide great accompaniment to everything from honey roast ham to fore-rib of beef.
