Vinous, February 2023

The 2020 Laroque is even better than the en primeur sample. Dark and enveloping, with tons of class, Laroque is a winner. Succulent dark plum, gravel, spice, menthol, licorice and pipe tobacco give the 2020 tons of...

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the exquisite 2020 Laroque Bordeaux Blend from the esteemed region of Saint Emilion in Bordeaux, France. This wine is a true masterpiece, crafted with precision and finesse by the renowned producer, Laroque.

In the glass, this captivating red wine exhibits a deep and alluring color, enticing you to explore its complexities. On the nose, aromas of sweet berries intermingle with herbs, wet earth, and moss undertones, creating a captivating bouquet that immediately captivates the senses. As you take your first sip, you'll be greeted by a medium to full-bodied wine that showcases ultra-fine and creamy tannins, a testament to its impeccable craftsmanship.

The palate is a symphony of flavors, with lush layers of black plums, chocolate, blueberries, and blackberries dancing harmoniously on your tongue. This wine is rich, opulent, and deep, with a vibrant freshness that adds a delightful dimension to the overall experience. The texture is velvety and luxurious, enveloping your palate with each sip.

Renowned wine critics have showered this wine with praise, and it's easy to see why. Decanter awarded it an impressive 94 points, praising its ripe, juicy, and seductive nature. James Suckling also bestowed a 94-point score, commending its polished and refined character. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave it a score of 93, highlighting its bursting aromas and velvety texture.

This wine has immense aging potential and will continue to evolve and develop over the next few decades. If you have the patience, I recommend allowing it to rest in your cellar for at least four to five years before indulging in its splendor.

In conclusion, the 2020 Laroque Bordeaux Blend is a true gem from the esteemed Saint Emilion region. With its impeccable balance, complexity, and longevity, it is a wine that deserves a special place in your cellar.
