La Fleur Laroze
This is the property’s second wine, which is a Grand Cru. Its main characteristic is its complexity that is more modest than that of Château Laroze, the 1st wine.
How? This is achieved by reducing the blend to our two main grape varieties with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. As a result, the winemaking process is adapted and the wine is aged accordingly.
While it is our second wine chronologically, because it appeared later in the history of the property, it is in no way less great. La Fleur Laroze is a stylised version of Château Laroze and does not alter the property’s trademark recipe of using a large proportion of Cabernet Franc. This characteristic is what distinguishes the three most celebrated Saint-Emilion wines, but is rare elsewhere; it is so natural for Laroze.
La Fleur Laroze reveals its aromas as soon as the bottle is uncorked – it does not need to breathe. Its talent becomes apparent in the very first years of being kept. It is known for its ageing potential and has been hailed as a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
