    Winemaker Notes

    65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

    Graceful and easy-to-understand, an appealing harmony of Cabernet and Merlot. While well-structured and endowed with significant aging potential, Larose-Trintaudon is supple and ready to drink when released.

    Delicious with all kinds of beef and lamb, slow-cooked stews or pot roast and mushrooms with garlic and herbs.

    Chateau Larose-Trintaudon, France
    Chateau Larose-Trintaudon Winery Image
    Vines were first planted at Larose-Trintaudon at the end of the 17th century. In 1858, Count Ernest de Lahens built the Chateau and its tower that, to this day, watches over the ocean of vines. The wine estate alternated between periods of success and harder times, the worst being the outbreak of phylloxera that destroyed all French vineyards in 1869.

    In the 1960s, the Forners, a renowned Spanish wine growing family, purchased the estate. Under the scientific authority of Professor Emile Peynaud, a prominent vine and wine specialist, the property regained its former stature, in particular following the planting of 430 acres of the best grape varieties.

    The benefits of this work were reaped twenty five years later, with the 1986 vintage of Chateau Larose-Trintaudon. This was when the Assurances Générales de France, confident in the estate's potential, invested in the property and then in the Chilean estate Casas del Toqui in 1994. Since then, year after year, the estate's teams have worked in the four century-old tradition while also looking forward to the future and implementing a policy of sustainable development.

    While it claims the same basic landscape as the Medoc—only every so slightly elevated above river level—the Haut Medoc is home to all of the magnificent chateaux of the Left Bank of Bordeaux, creating no lack of beautiful sites to see.

    These chateaux, residing over the classed-growth cru in the villages of Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe are within the Haut Medoc appellation. Though within the confines of these villages, any classed-growth chateaux will most certainly claim village or cru status on their wine labels.

    Interestingly, some classed-growth cru of the Haut Medoc fall outside of these more famous villages and can certainly be a source of some of the best values in Bordeaux. Deep in color, and concentrated in ripe fruit and tannins, these wines (typically Cabernet Sauvignon-based) often prove the same aging potential of the village classed-growths. Among these, the highest ranked chateaux are Chateau La Lagune and Chateau Cantemerle.

    One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde River, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

    Tasting Notes for Bordeaux Blends

    Bordeaux Blends are dry, red wines and generally have aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry plum, graphite, cedar and violet. Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines, modeled after the Right Bank, are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure.

    Perfect Food Pairings for Bordeaux Blends

    Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb or smoked duck.

    Sommelier Secrets for Bordeaux Blends

    While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties in specified percentages, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, for example. Occassionally a winemaker might add a small percentage of a non-Bordeaux variety, such as Syrah or Petite Sirah for a desired result.
