The six-hectare vineyard of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru uniquely draws together the three terroirs of the Saint Emilion Appellation. Around ninety percent of the vineyard is composed of old-vine Merlot with the rest being Cabernet Franc. The result is Chateau Laforge – a substantial wine with a rich purple color, elegant, and memorable.
"A sleeper of the vintage, the classic 2008 Laforge offers up notes of Christmas fruitcake, black cherries, cedar and spice in its evolved aromatics. In the mouth, it is elegant and medium-bodied, with good acidity and outstanding depth. This is complex, concentrated style of wine is impeccably well-made. Drink it over the next 7-8 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Chocolate and ripe black fruits go with a lively, spicy acidity that gives the wine a great lift. It is lively and concentrated. "
