Chateau Vieux Laroque 2016

2016 was a unique vintage in Bordeaux, a mixture of drought and heat, both of which calmed down during harvest allowing the grapes to be picked without issues. This Chateau Vieux Laroque is a winner on any dinner table.

A shiny dark ruby colour, the nose is fruity with ripe red fruits scents and a spicy and vanilla touch. The attack is intense and complex with plum aromas and vanilla notes. On the palate it is well balanced with round tannins.

Chateau Vieux Laroque comes from the AOP (Appelation d'Origine Protégée ) Bordeaux. The Bordeaux appellation is the largest of the Bordeaux vine growing area and have a large variety of soils, climates and grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 

65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc.
