Chateau Laroze

Appellation : Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

1610 Like a jewel nestled between the hillsides, Château Laroze preserves one of Saint-Emilion’s greatest treasures. 400 years of family history form the living memory of both Saint-Emilion and the property, of which Guy Meslin is today the custodian, even more than the owner. 27 hectares of vines take place around a magnificent wooded park of 2 hectares and a 19th century building, Napoleon III style. A vineyard at the foot of the hill, all in one piece, the property is located 1.5 km northwest of the historic village of Saint-Emilion. It is on its soil both siliceous – bringing finesse and elegance, and clay – allowing structure – that the history of Château Laroze wines begins around these 5 grape varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
