The 2015 Les Laurets Baron is deep garnet-purple colored with chocolate-covered cherries, red and black plums and tilled soil notions with touches of menthol, lavender and cloves. Medium to full-bodied and firmly textured with ripe, grainy tannins and sporting impressively concentrated red and black fruits, it finishes with great persistence.
Drink Date: 2018 – 2030
Chateau des Laurets Baron cultivates a selection of plots, harvested and sorted by hand, to produce a blend with all the care that goes into the finest wines. After acquiring Chateau des Laurets in 2003, Baron Benjamin de Rothschild wanted to highlight the unique character of this estate by producing a limited vintage from a selection of the best Merlot plots.
A niche wine, produced only in the best years, Chateau des Laurets Baron bears the mark of the great Saint?Emilion wines, predominantly Merlot.
