Planted upon one of the oldest layers of Médoc gravel, called the 'Pyrenean layer', this wine delivers a very deep, ruby colour. On the palate, sweet spices of vanilla, cinnamon and ginger entwine with flavours of dates and dried figs.
51% Merlot , 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot
Château Larose Trintaudon dates back to 1719, but it wasn't until 1838 when Henry Delaroze, Mayor of Saint-Laurent, planted a vineyard on a gravelly mound in a place called 'Trintaudon' that its winemaking history began. The history remained the same as its sibling Larose Perganson, because it formed part of Jean-Pierre du Pontent's, acquisitions in 1719, when he was Counselor to the King of France. During the subsequent years, the property fell victim to phylloxera and neglect and it wasn't until 1963, when Professor Emile Peynaud was brought in to replant the vineyards, that the Château achieved the reputation that it has today.
This wine is very deep, intense ruby in colour with violet hues. On the palate, sweet spices of vanilla, cinnamon and ginger entwine with flavours of dates and dried figs. A racy, incredibly full-bodied and well-structured wine with enormous density and power. Infinite length on the palate with excellent balance between fruit, tannins and acidity.
