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 Fronsac region. The estate has been owned by the Hervé since 1607 and was made famous in the 1970’s by Jean-Noel and Dominique Hervé who improved the quality of the wine and made it famous round the world. Their son, Thomas, is now at the helm. The wine is consistently excellent and has some of the best vineyards in Fronsac along with a plot of 100-year-old Malbec which makes up 5% of the blend each year. Our special relationship with Thomas gives us access to limited stocks of older vintages which have been matured in the chateau.
