Producer: From the website of their UK agent:
"Château Larose Trintaudon dates back to 1719, but it wasn't until 1838 when Henry Delaroze, Mayor of Saint-Laurent, planted a vineyard on a gravelly mound in a place called 'Trintaudon' that its winemaking history began. The history remained the same as its sibling Larose Perganson, because it formed part of Jean-Pierre du Pontent's, acquisitions in 1719, when he was Counselor to the King of France. During the subsequent years, the property fell victim to phylloxera and neglect and it wasn't until 1963, when Professor Emile Peynaud was brought in to replant the vineyards, that the Château achieved the reputation that it has today.
Nestled between the communes of Saint-Julien-de-Beychevelle and Pauillac, the 190-hectare vineyard is planted upon one of the oldest layers of Médoc gravel, called the 'Pyrenean layer'. It benefits from very similar growing conditions to its neighbour Château Latour. The soil is mainly composed of fine and sandy gravels on top of a clay-based limestone soil."
Old Bridge Rating: Classic Médoc claret, firm and serious, but so obviously classy and refined.
