Chateau Laforge 2017 - Bordeaux Future
The Laforge 2017 has a beautiful blueberry and blackberry bouquet with a well-integrated new oak. I was surprised that it was 80% new wood – you hardly notice it. The palate shows medium body with solid tannin and well-measured acidity: a more elegant interpretation of the Laforge style.
The six-hectare vineyard of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru uniquely draws together the three terroirs of the Saint Emilion Appellation. Around ninety percent of the vineyard is composed of old-vine Merlot with the rest being Cabernet Franc. The result is Chateau Laforge – a substantial wine with a rich purple color, elegant, and memorable.
