Tasting Notes:

Beautiful, dark, garnet-red colour with a deep purple rim. Rich and vinous, showing black fruit and spicy hints, as well as vanilla, balsamic and white pepper overtones. Starts out quite powerful and round on the palate with tightly-knit, velvety tannin. The long aftertaste is enhanced by good acidity that confers beautiful freshness.

The vineyard of Château des Laurets is spread on 90 hectares on two neighbouring appellations: Montagne Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion. Within this area, the 40 hectares located on Puisseguin are dedicated to the production of "Château des Laurets”. Entering the estate on the north side, opposite the garden, offers a beautiful view on the castle built around 1860, whose architectural feature is the existence of a central octagonal tower overlooking the rear.

The vineyards of Chateau des Laurets are planted on south facing slopes and showing in places big rocks of limestone. Particular attention is given to vineyard management in order to achieve low yield and get quality grapes at optimum ripeness. The grapes are handpicked (the machine is used as reinforcements when a faster response is required).

The entire harvest is hand selected and destemmed before entering the vat. The wooden vats, stainless steel and concrete tanks are fully temperature controlled.

After about one month of maceration in tank, the wine is then carefully aged in French oak barrels during 14 months.
