expert reviews about
2010 Chateau Laroque
Gilbert & Gaillard (2010 Vintage) says
Huon Hooke (2010 Vintage) says
Deep colour, of good hue. Toasty oak and savoury earthy developed bouquet, lots of blackberry and some cranberry, with subtle mint and floral high-notes. Some animal notes and alcohol fumes. Richly ripe flavours, a kick of alcohol warmth to close. Good long carry. Satisfying, but rather fume-y and a bit over the top. Heaps of grunt, but no elegance.2014 - 2026
James Suckling (2010 Vintage) says
Blackberries and dark chocolate at first. Opens up with leather, fresh wood and aniseed. Good body with pure fruit and a nice juicy acidity. Chewy with slightly firm tannins and lots of new wood that needs time to integrate. Try in 2017.
