Chateau Larose Trintaudon Haut-Medoc
This product is currently sold out.
Chateau Larose Trintaudon Haut-Medoc. Very deep, intense ruby colour with violet hues. On the palate, sweet spices of vanilla, cinnamon, tamarind 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.
Nestled between the communes of Saint-Julien-de-Beychevelle and Pauillac, the 190 hectare vineyard of Château Larose Trintaudon is planted upon one of the oldest layers of Médoc gravel, called the 'Pyrenean layer'. Situated on the borders of the Pauillac and Saint-Julien Appellations, it benefits from very similar growing conditions as its neighbour Château Latour. The soil is mainly composed of fine and sandy gravels on top of a 'clay-based' limestone soil. The vines are, on average, 28 years old with a planting density of 6,600 vines per hectare. The team green harvests every Spring to ensure that grape bunches hang separately, allowing air to circulate around each one, and to control yields which are equivalent to 40 hl per hectare.
