Located only 1.2 km from the medieval town of Saint Emilion, Château Larmande is one of the appellation's most ancient estates. The local archives mention its existence going back at least as far 1585. The diversity of soils (clay-limestone, clay-siliceous, and ancient sand) accounts for the fact that Larmande is such a well balanced and distinguished wine. Château Larmande's state-of-the-art cellar (renovated in early 2003 and used for the first time this year) has proved to be eminently functional and well-designed. The wine is barrel-aged for 15-18 months. Careful attention is paid not only to winemaking, but also to the choice of barrels. The end result is a wine of great finesse.

Dating from the 16th century, this property is located on the outskirts of the charming, historic town of St Emilion. Ranked as a Grand Cru Classe, Larmande relies on Merlot (65%) and Cabernet Franc (30%) and a small addition of Cabernet Sauvignon. Soils here are predominantly sandy with parcels on calcareous and sandy clays. The 2001 shows youthful reserve and intensity in the nose. It is firm and quite intense on the palate, with medium weight, soft tannins and a defining touch of firm acidity. Classic expression of St Emilion in a classic year - very well priced! Robert Parker 92.
