Product Overview

The 2016 Château Larose-Trintaudon Haut-Médoc is once again a distinguished “Cru Bourgeois” selection for the vintage. Deep, rich red in color, it presents intense aromas of ripe raspberries and blackcurrants along with a bouquet of graphite, dried herbs, tobacco, and cedar. The wine is full bodied and round with long-lasting flavors that pair nicely with meat, poultry, and cheeses.

Varietal Composition: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
Appellation: Haut-Médoc AOC
Farming Practices: Certified Sustainable
Aging: 12 months in French oak barrels

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"At 380 acres, this is one of the largest Médoc estates just the wrong side of the tracks from Pauillac. This generously structured wine is full of juicy black-currant flavors that come from the 60% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. It is likely to develop relatively quickly and will certainly be ready from 2021." -RV, 4/1/19

89 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Larose-Trintaudon has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and pencil box aromas, not quite as intense as the best Haut-Médoc but certainly translating the quality of the growing season. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, rounded and almost velvety in texture, plush and pure with ample red cherries and wild strawberry on the finish. This is a very approachable, early-drinking Cru Bourgeois but there is class here and the substance to suggest it will age well. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London." -NM, Oct/2018
