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.
External Reviews for Château Larose-Trintaudon Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
This large vineyard has build a following in the US market, with consistently good quality wine. And the rsquo;94 follows in the style of small-scale clarets, light, plummy and gentle, the chewy tannins bringing to mind a dinner of roast lamb. Thatrsquo;s how I used to enjoy Larose-Trintaudon, not so many years ago, when it cost $7.99. The only consolation in the current pricing is the fact that most California wines of this quality cost at least as much.
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.
Château Larose Trintaudon - Cru Bourgeois Supérieur 2005: Dieser elegante Bordeaux funkelt im Glas dunkel rubinrot. Am Gaumen brilliert er mit einem mittleren Körper und Aromen von roten und schwarzen Früchten (schwarze Johannisbeere, Himbeere und Brombeere) sowie spürbaren Tanninen. Wunderbar zu Pilzgerichten, Wild oder auch Gänseleber und Käse. Er sollte bereits zwei Stunden vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.

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.
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.
