Chateau Laroque

Château Laroque is situated close to St Christophe des Bardes in St Emilion on a plateau of limestone rock. Its history dates back to the 12th century, with a tower from that time still dominating the estate.

It has passed through several families since and is now owned by the Beaumartin family and is the largest estate in St Emilion with 61 hectares and was promoted to grand cru classé in 1996. More recently well known St Emilion winemaker David Suire has been bought in and the property has achieved new heights. Although planted in one block the make up of the limestone varies as does the exposition around the château, on slopes or on terraces. Merlot is the pre-dominant grape variety with a small amount of Cabernet Franc and the vines are about 50 years old on average. Wine making is traditional with maturation in oak, the length of which depends on the vintage conditions. There is also a second wine produced, Tours de Laroque for more immediate drinking.
