Château-Larose-Trintaudon Haut Médoc 2010

Château-Larose-Trintaudon Haut Médoc 2010

SKU 3165


Beautiful dark ruby color with quite an intense bouquet bringing together aromas of red ripe berries (raspberry) as well as spicier vanilla notes. On the palate the wine is incredibly round with a dense tannic structure, yet not overly massive. Great freshness nished off by slight mineral undertones and a silky texture. Without a doubt the best Larose Trintaudon of these last 25 years! Please decant two hours before tasting. To be enjoyed by 2020.

Wine AdvocateA real winner from this estate, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot is widely available and generally sells for under $20 a bottle in the American marketplace. Plump, fleshy black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with some cedar wood, vanilla, and incense jumps from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, attractive, somewhat denser than usual style for Larose Trintaudon. Nevertheless, the tannins are sweet and the acidity low, so drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.

Wine EnthusiastOne of the largest Médoc properties, this chateau always produces a reliable wine that is ready to drink soon. Soft and already approachable, the 2010 is no exception. Ripe tannins and a blackberry flavor meld into a round finish

Wine SpectatorA pure beam of cassis runs along hints of warm stone, violet and red licorice, with a focused finish. Drink now through 2016. 70,000 cases made. -JM
