89–91. Barrel sample. One of the largest vineyards in the Médoc, Larose Trintaudon has produced a reliable, attactively fruity wine with soft tannins, blackberry-juice flavors and a crisp acidity at the end.
One of the largest Médoc properties, this chateau always produces a reliable wine that is ready to drink soon. Soft and already approachable, the 2010 is no exception. Ripe tannins and a blackberry flavor meld into a round finish
At 341 acres, the largest vineyard in the Médoc, Larose-Trintaudon was once owned by the Forner family of Marqués de Cáceres fame in Rioja. Today, back in French hands, its wines remain smooth and velvety, reminiscent of Spain perhaps, but with a smoky elegance that is more Médoc. Ready to drink soon, this is a good value.
