Lady Laroze – St Emilion Grand Cru 2015

The Chateau Laroze belongs to family Meslin since 1610. In 2010, to mark the four centuries of their presence on the land Laroze Guy Meslin decided to honor women who have helped to preserve the family estate with a new wine called ‘Lady Laroze’ – he estate 3rd label. The vineyard spreads over 27 hectares and is located at the bottom of the hill northwest of Saint Emilion. Harvest is manual and the vinification is traditional with control of temperatures. The wine is ageing in oak barrels of French oak.

What strikes first is the fresh aromatic bouquet emiting from the glass while the wine is being poored. The wine has a deep red colour. The aromatic intensity is remarquable. The nose is very fresh and pur, dominated by cabernet Franc that emits fresh aromas of liquorice, mint and spices. On the mouth, the attack is fresh and attractive. It has a lot of charm and character, aromatic power with soft tanins that offer a great volume. The finale is marked by a fresh and sapid aromatic taste that lingers. The tanins soften and the finale gets longer with some time to air the glass.

About The Brand

In 1882 M et Mme Georges Gurchy bought three little vineyards, put them together and founded the family estate of Laroze; at this time, it was 15 hectares wide (37 acres). Two years later, in 1885, they built the chateau with its cellars and vat house. They were succeeded by their son Maurice, then their granddaughter Andree, who later married a doctor Meslin.

Their son Georges took charge of the running of the estate for 40 years, reorganised it under his own name and ensured its development. His efforts and those of earlier generations were rewarded in the 1955 Saint-Emilion classification. The location of the vineyard and the quality of its wines earned Chateau Laroze Grand Cru Classe status.

On the retirement of his father, Guy Meslin has been in charge of the family estate since 1990. In his forty years at the helm of Laroze, my father Georges Meslin brought the estate together under a common name, increased its size, and built its sales network and the quality of a Grand Cru Classe. In the fantastic 1990’s, we modernised the estate and all its facilities. The result today is a resounding success with an exceptional winegrowing unit.
