Chateau Herve Laroque is the second wine of Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque. It has a larger proportion of Merlot in it and is immediately impressive from first opening. It is a relatively dense wine with dark red and black fruit, plum, cassis, damson and plenty of well-integrated oak flavours along with some more opulent notes of tobacco, bitter chocolate and roasted coffee. A brilliant wine in its own right.

Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque is a 16ha estate located on the superb hillside terroir of Saillans, in Bordeaux’s underrated Fronsac region. The estate has been owned by the Hervé family since 1607 and was made famous in the 1970’s by Jean-Noel and Dominique Herve who set about improving the quality of the wine so it could rival some of its more illustrious neighbours. Their son, Thomas, is now at the helm after the sad passing of Jean-Noel in 2020 and he has carried on their passion, charm and flair for making great wine. Thomas is lucky to own some of the best vineyards in Fronsac which include a plot of 100-year-old Malbec which makes up 5% of the blend each year. They have always made consistently excellent wines year after year which express their terroir and are a brilliant advert for the whole Fronsac region. Our special relationship with Thomas gives us access to older vintages which have been matured in the chateau.
