Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Laroze bursts from the glass with warm plums, baked cherries and mulberries with hints of chocolate box, tapenade and camphor. Full, rich and opulent with bags of black fruit preserves and spicy sparks framed by velvety tannins, it finishes with a peppery lift. - Robert Parker The notes of red fruits are very concentrated, behind them develop a wide range of aromas including vanilla and leather with aging in barrels.

Barrel sample. Deep cherry red with black core. Nicely dusty/rocky black fruit with the aromatic freshness and perfume of its 28% Cabernet Franc (28% in the vineyard at least), opening up to sweet blackcurrant. Compact, dense tannins but still finer-textured than some and with notable freshness in this vintage. Firm, chewy texture but smooth and attractively dry on the finish.
