2017 Margaux

Village Margaux

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)

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.
