Château Laroque 2018, a stunning success for its début

Its first rodeo, a stunning success!

There is no rodeo in Bordeaux. If we stretch our imagination, the annual wine futures (en primeur) release comes close in comparison. For the first time, Château Laroque is sold on Place de Bordeaux where wine trading takes place. You may call the 2018 en primeur campaign its first rodeo. What a stunning success Château Laroque is having already!

No better value for top quality

We are value hunters, even we were shocked at our latest find. Lisa Perrotti-Brown (MW) at Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave Château Laroque 2018 a rating of 95-97 points. The chateau also priced the wine so reasonably that we can offer it to our customers at $25.95 per bottle. Can you name another wine at this price that is so highly rated? We have trouble finding a better match.

Tasting Notes:

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Laroque is a little closed to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal fragrant black cherries, wild blueberries and blackberry preserves scents with hints of crushed rocks, underbrush and violets plus a waft of Marmite toast. Full-bodied and jam-packed with bright, crunchy black and blue fruits, it has a firm line of ripe, fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing very long and layered. Impressive! Being aged in oak barriques, 50% new, the blend is 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/23/2019, Bordeaux 2018 Issue), Rating: 95-97
