Château-Larose-Trintaudon Haut Médoc 2012
Wine EnthusiastOne of the largest estates in the Médoc, this misses being in Pauillac by being-literally-on the wrong side of the rail tracks. Regardless, the location ultimately gives the wine depth and richness. It's ripe, dark, dense and very structured, showing the new wood that will integrate. Drink from 2018.
Wine SpectatorThis has a good core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit, overshadowed by a cloak of warm bread dough, leaving a drying feel on the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 70,000 cases made.
