2020 Château Laroze  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Plums, spicy black raspberries and flowers fill the nose. Medium-bodied, silky, long and fresh, with an elegant, dark plum and spicy chocolate finish that lingers. I really like the energy, sweetness and length in this vintage. 92-94 Pts

Medium-bodied, elegant, soft and fresh, this wine shows ripe, black cherry, plum and cocoa on the nose, palate and finish. Just a few years of age and this will be even better. 90-92 Pts

2016 Château Laroze  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

With licorice, cherries and coffee bean, the wine gets started. Medium bodied, elegant, fresh and silky, this should be available for nice drinking early, but it is going to be even better with 2-3 years of age. 90 Points

A lighter style of St. Emilion, produced from a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the early drinking charmer is all about its soft, licorice, cocoa, red berry and espresso character. This is not a wine for aging. 87 Points
