Château Laroze has not one, but several notes, like a perfume. Blending is the way we play with this palette of fragrances. The predominant grape variety is Merlot (60%), but Château Laroze is made with a blend of 5 varieties in all: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and a large proportion of Cabernet Franc (30%), which is quite unusual for a Saint-Emilion wine.
It is in fact this significant presence of Cabernet Franc, made possible by the profile of our terroir, that gives Château Laroze its intense aromas, structure and character that make it so different from its neighbours. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc makes the wine well-suited to be laid down. It enjoys going on long journeys with the Merlot, like a time traveller!
