In 1858 the Ducourt family created its first estate with a few hectares of vines in Ladaux, a small village southwest of Bordeaux. Today the Ducourts own one of the largest independent vineyards in the region with 440 hectares of vines spread over 13 châteaux in the Entre-Deux-Mers and Saint-Emilion appellations. These estates produce 2.5 million bottles a year. In 1979, Marie-Christine's daughter of Henry Ducourt buys this prestigious property. The vineyard was completely replanted in only 3 years and the Château from the XIV century renovated. Four of the châteaux are represented by Planet Wine.
Located on a hillside near the entrance of Coimères in south-east Bordeaux, Château Larroque has an exceptional terroir composed of gravelly clay.
The fruit is cold macerated and then fermented in stainless steel thermoregulated tanks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in Oak Barrel.
The wine is of dark ruby color, with purple hues. Aromas of vanilla, coffee, and black currants. Flavors of red berries with a rich, balanced finish of fine tannin.
Enjoy with a roasted rack of lamb or most grilled red meats.
