As a bastion of viticulture, Château Laroque has its roots firmly embedded in a plateau that encompasses all the limestone soil variations found in the finest terroirs of Saint-Émilion. This highly calcareous geological foundation, veiled by a delicate layer of clay to varying degrees, has yielded wines of exceptional quality.
Under the guidance of David Suire, a comprehensive soil analysis was conducted across Laroque's 61 hectares. The results confirmed the estate's exceptional terroir, unveiling distinct "climats" (small vineyard areas) that inform the selection of grape varieties, ensuring optimal grape ripeness and contributing to the production of wines of unparalleled excellence.
"The second wine of this estate, this is smoothly textured and rich with dark-plum and licorice flavors. It still has plenty of tannins in the background, so the wine does need more time. Drink from 2023. — Roger Voss"
