Château Laroque 2021 – Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

Château Laroque 2021 – Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, racy and reveals elegance, complexity and racy power. There are notes of boysenberry, dense black berries and a slight sense of place (local biotop) combined with fine touches of fleshy red berries and a subtle hint of camphor and pepper. The palate reveals accuracy, volume, roundness, a little airiness in the approach, a fine linear edge, some concentration, accuracy, a nice acidic background, energy as well as sapidity/fine iodine. On the palate this wine expresses boysenberry, tart/pulpy raspberry and more lightly purple plum notes combined with hints of herbs/black tea, crushed cherry, salinity, fine vanilla, sweet blond tobacco, chocolate and a hint of crushed almond. Good length. The tannins are precise, racy and straightforward. Some “infusion” character on the mid-palate.
