The Story

Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Origin: Puisseguin-St.Emilion

Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild purchased this 86-hectare property in 2003. Château des Laurets vineyards are in two appellations – Puisseguin and Montagne Saint-Emilion.

Building on the experience gained at Château Clarke and working closely with oenologist Michel Rolland, Benjamin de Rothschild and Ariane de Rothschild are making Château des Laurets a reference for quality in the Puisseguin and Montagne Saint Emilion region.

The grapes come from old vines and are nearly entirely Merlot, with a small amount of Cabernet Franc. The wine is matured in new barrels for 15 to 18 months. Château des Laurets has a sumptuous nose with harmonious tannins. Aromas of berries, in particular raspberry, roasted toasted notes and a beautiful lingering finish all characterize the wine.

Members of the Gitana Team staff have designed the label.


Vintage 2020

In Bordeaux, the heat led to early flowering. Additionally, this led to an early harvest after a very hot summer. As a starting point, there is great maturity in the grapes, and we can expect a more opulent vintage than in recent years.

This year's summer was the hottest since 1959, but the rain fell at just the right time during the growing season. The harvest took place two weeks before the norm and will produce grapes with high alcohol potential and the lowest acidity since the 2003 vintage. As they say in Bordeaux: “It was a good and extreme growing season which , hopefully, also produces great wines.”

Dark purple colour with violet hue and black core. Distinct nose with blackberries, mulberries and forest berry jam, hints of fresh walnuts, fine toasting and mild spices in the background. On the palate medium bodied but with good length, ripe tannins balanced by sweet fruit.
