Produced at the grand Chateau de Langalerie, an estate dating back to 1830, by the distinguished winemaker Michel Rolland. The Merlot-based wine is utterly traditional in its production and shows a very classic style. The nose is black cherries, black plums, and crème de cassis, with very light herbs, minerality, and cocoa powder. In the mouth, the wine is medium to medium-full body, with deep black fruits dominant over some red berries like cranberry and strawberry. There’s more cedar, bark, green tobacco, and cigar box, with a touch of tarragon, conifer (redwood), and vanilla notes on the very fine, slightly grippy finish.
Gold medal - Gilbert et Gaillard
"Made with Merlot only, this Château de Langalerie offers an elegant and complex nose of ripe fruit, sweet spices, cedar, and cocoa. The tannin is very supple and this roundness amplifies the palate with hints of black fruits. The gourmet finish reveals a real harmony that enables this wine to be enjoyed now."
