Neal Martin  tasting London Sept 11

2009 Château Larose-Trintaudon 91
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. The Larose-Trintaudon 2009 has a very refined, « classic » bouquet with sous-bois, tobacco and broody dark fruits. The delineation is terrific. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, great tension with crisp black, mineral-laden fruits on the finish. Bon vin ! Tasted September 2011.

Larose Trintaudon Haut Médoc 2002

Tasting
Intense bright ruby color with garnet highlights, indicative signs of fi ne ageing. This wine has spicy notes of pepper and licorice with aromas of prunes and ripe berries as well as hints of fresh tobacco.The fi rst taste on the palate is fresh and straightforward with supple, well-integrated tannins; an overall well-balanced and ample wine.
Appelation :
Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois
Origin :
Bordeaux (Saint Laurent Médoc)
Color :
Red
Serving temperature :
18°C
Ageing :
To be enjoyed now through 2013
Soil :
- 190 hectares of vineyards.- Soil : Fine gravels, sandy gravels and clayish limestone soil.- Planting density : 6,600 vines per hectare.- Average age of vines: 28 years old.
Climate :
Climatic conditions that were rather humid in the Spring, provoking some blossoms to drop on the Merlot grapes and smaller, less fuller grapes for the Cabernet Sauvignon, all in all giving us less yield and a smaller harvest. September and October were magnifi cent months weather-wise, with an Indian Summer that fi nally brought a late, and much hoped for, ripening of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Varietals :
- 60% Cabernet Sauvignon bringing structure, fragrance and fruit.- 40% Merlot bringing roundness and body.
Harvests :
24th of September

History
 
CREATION IN 1719
The origins of the domain go back to 1719, but it was in 1838 that a certain Henry Delaroze, mayor of Saint-Laurent, created a vineyard on the parcel known as the “tènement de Trintaudon”, a magnificent gravelly hillside up to then uncultivated.

The property is mentioned under the name of ” Trentaudon “  in the first edition of « Bordeaux and its Wines” published by Féret (1850)/  In the second edition of Féret  (1868), it is classed as a cru bourgeois, then in the third edition (1874), as a cru bourgeois supérieur.

In 1870, Comte Ernest de Lahens presided over this domain of 345 ha and commissioned the building of château Trintaudon, capped with its distinctive tower dominating the landscape like a lighthouse in an ocean of vines. 

DECLINE AND RENAISSANCE
Prosperity, passage through the hands of several owners, then the ravages of phylloxera and mildew took their toll on the viticultural vocation of the property.

In 1923, Comte Tchernoff, a white Russian migrant, delivered the fatal blow to the domain. He spent 7 million francs in an attempt to become a pioneer of industrial dairy farming, but in pulling up the greater part of the vines he ruined both the domain and himself.     

In 1963, after having been owned by a great Spanish general Duke Del Infantado, the domain Trintaudon was bought in a state of semi-abandon by the Forner family, who were already proprietors of Château Camensac and Marques de Caceres in the Rioja wine region of Spain.  175 hectares of the best grape varieties were planted on the scientific advice of an eminent wine and vineyard specialist, Professor Émile Peynaud. 

IN THE PORTFOLIO OF AGF-ALLIANZ 
In 1986, the insurance company Allianz bought the domain, now one of the largest vineyards in the Medoc both in terms of size and production,  based on the great potential of its ‘terroir’  It has since built up a fine reputation and is now considered one of the very best Crus Bourgeois.
