The Estate traces back its origins to 1719, but it’s really in 1838 that Henry Delaroze, then mayor of Saint-Laurent, established a vineyard on one of the most ancient gravel beds of the Medoc. In 1986, les Assurances Générales de France (Allianz) purchased the Estate, one of the largest of the Medoc by its surface area and total production; a well renowned property recognized the world over as a top quality Cru Bourgeois.Deep ruby colour, very dense. Nose of cinnamon, sweet spices, black cherry. Crunchy fresh black fruit on the palate with very good controlled power. The tannic structure remains caressing, smooth and very long. A great vintage for ageing, the likes of which are few in a lifetime!
