The Oddbins Take

Chateau Laroque in St-Emilion is regarded by many as "Little Versailles." We feel this might be a slight disservice; sure, Versailles is magnificent; it accommodated a carousel of Louis (Louis'? Louises?) and Antoinette's infamous pastry chef. Yet, there was that whole business with the Weimar Republic and despite they're charming grounds, there isn't a grape vine in sight! Laroque, on the other hand is yet to impose any detrimental reparation demands upon a foreign nation and their wine is magnificent. With powerful aromas of dark plum, bramble, black cherry and spiced characters from the perfectly integrated oak, we may have to start calling Versailles "Little Laroque."
