Chateau Laroze Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Château Laroze is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé and its 27-hectare (67-acre) vineyard is located at the foot of the hill to the north-west of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. The vines grow around the Château. We till the soil, cultivate grass between the rows, drain the plots, add organic supplements and prohibit the use of weed-killers, so that the vines' roots find it easier to penetrate the soil made of silica and clay. The quality of this beautifull setting is very favourable for the Cabernet Franc grapes providing us with rich tasty wines that are elegant and more-ish.

In 1610 The Gurchy family already was producing wine at SAINT-EMILION on the land of « Mazerat ». In 1882/1883 they joined three little vineyards to create one spreading out on 37 acres. Two years later, in 1885, they built the château and the vats and barrel cellar. These are caracteristics of the architecture of the XIX th. Their son, Maurice, succeded to his father, then their little daughter, Andrée, who married the Dr MESLIN. His son, Georges (my father),managed the vineyard during 40 years; he became the only shareholder and developped the vineyard to 74 acres and increased the popularity of Laroze. The quality of his work and the one of the preceding generations has been congratulated at the classement in 1955. The terroir of the vineyard and the quality of the wines put Château Laroze as a "Grand Cru Classé". From 1986, after his father, Guy Meslin is managing the Château. Read less
