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.
Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque, owned by Thomas Herve, is one of Fronsac’s leading estates. The 2010 is arguably the estates finest vintage and a seriously opulent wine. The fruit is still youthful and brimming with dark cassis and damson notes. The palate is textured, structured and complex with tobacco, mocha and sweet spice notes. It’s a real treat!
