Food Pairings for Château Larose-Trintaudon Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
This is a reliable excellent wine that can tolerate long term cellaring.
Smells are very rich of raspberries and currant but more then anything on the nose i get a lot of raspberry with a kick of spice, decent amount of fruit and berry with a soft tannin on the finish nothing harsh, the merlot gives it alot of fruit and overall a medium body and just hint of spice and oak, the finish is fairly short and overall i feel the flavor on this wine is a little bit thin, this is though a pretty good food wine but maybe to my tastes a bit simple on its own. Overall nothing offensive but nothing world changing either.
I enjoyed drinking this wine, though I would not select it again with the expectation of structure or complexity. Medium bodied, nose is earthy and herbaceous, imparting hints of wet clay and dark fruit.
Amazing Left bank Bordeaux for the price tag. 2005 vintage (as of this writing) needs a bit longer to find its balance, but very drinkable nonetheless.
As with the other vintages of C.Larose, this 2004 is full of earthy aromas and bombs the palate with leather and dark fruit...I simply adore this wine..You can't beat it for the price-its an exceptional value at 20 us dollars and honestly i would have paid 35 or more for a treasure like this..Buy every bottle you can get your hands on
External Reviews for Château Larose-Trintaudon Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
A bit herbal on the nose and palate, but lots of currant and lavender character. Medium-bodied palate, with a round finish. Best after 2006.
A silky and refined young red, with currant and berry character, medium body and medium finish. A claret for all. Best after 2004.
Supple with stylish flavors of cassis, vanilla and blackberries mdash; excellent example of a Bordeaux from this leading estate.
At 430 acres, this is a huge estate situated just on the wrong side of the Pauillac appellation boundary. The property, now owned by an insurance company, was owned by the Forners (of Rioja producer Marqueacute;s de Cagrave;ceres) for many years. Yoursquo;ll spot the stylistic likeness in the soft, approachable good-value style.
Each plot and grape variety are independently made into wine in a temperature-regulated vathouse, offering our oenologists the opportunity to create complex blends. Rigorously controlled, alcoholic fermentation, and twice daily pumping over take place over a five-to seven-day period. When the alcoholic fermentation has come to a close, vatting follows its course for 2 to 3 weeks so as to extract the tannins from the marc. After careful tasting the wine is run off. Finally, malolactic fermentation which is left to occur in tanks immediately after running off, brings the wine-making process to an end. In early January, the wine is transferred to wood casks. In the quiet atmosphere of the ageing cellar, the barrels endow the wine with vital ingredients, while exposing it to tiny quantities of oxygen. This has an effect on the wine's colour and its tannins, producing a well-balanced, very elegant wine.
At 341 acres, the largest vineyard in the Meacute;doc, Larose-Trintaudon was once owned by the Forner family of Marqueacute;s de Caacute;ceres fame in Rioja. Today, back in French hands, its wines remain smooth and velvety, reminiscent of Spain perhaps, but with a smoky elegance that is more Meacute;doc. Ready to drink soon, this is a good value.
Nice luncheon claret. A bit austere, but has some good red licorice and mineral character. Medium to light body. Silky finish. Best from 2002 through 2005.
