Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. The Larose-Trintaudon 2009 has a very refined, "classic" bouquet with sous-bois, tobacco and broody dark fruits. The delineation is terrific. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, great tension with crisp black, mineral-laden fruits on the finish. Bon vin! Tasted September 2011.
Chateau Larose-Trintaudon Haut Medoc is an elegant, fruit-forward red composed of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Matured in French oak for twelve months, lovely notes of cherry, blackberry and blueberry are underscored by hints of subtly sweet vanilla and spice. Soft tannins and balanced acidity lend structure to the long finish.
