CHATEAU LAROQUE RED WINE SAINT EMILION GRANC CRU FRANCE 2010
Modern immediate style with aromas of spiced-plum danish, kirsch, warm clay and hints of tobacco. Dense, compact and concentrated, finishing with freshness and verve. Pairs well with savory Cornish meat pies or steak and stilton pie. Chateau Laroque is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.
