Owned by Château Larose Trintaudon, this wine comes from the same plateau west of Pauillac. It is well made, bringing out ripe fruit and generous black-cherry flavors, with a touch of spice from wood aging. The tannins are dry, in the background and sufficient to allow the wine to age. Drink from 2018.
