Intense ruby color with violet hues.
The nose is quite powerful, a true symphony of spices: milk caramel and vanilla, of jammy fruits: ripe plums, black currants, blackberries, as well as aromas of roasted coffee, toasted bread and dark chocolate.
Perfect roundness from a combination of opulent fruit and good oak ageing which provide superb balance and complexity.
100% cold pre-fermentary maceration.
A fabulous wine!
Please decant two hours before tasting.

Neal Martin tasting London Sept 11 :
2009 Château Larose Perganson 86
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. There is certainly a touch of under-ripeness on the nose of the Larose Perganson 2009. The palate is medium-bodied with bold, succulent tannins on the entry, although the finish is a little overdone and lacks a little delineation. Tasted September 2011.
