Chateau Des Laurets, Puisseguin Saint Emilion
“Wet soil and rich fruit with notes of vanilla. Bodied, this wine opens with fleshy tannins.” – James Suckling (91 points)
Since the purchase of Château des Laurets in 2003, Baron Benjamin de Rothschild wanted to reveal the great potential of this Estate wine by investing in new equipment and winemaking facilities associated with an increased focus on vineyard management and winemaking practices.
As a result from efforts and high exigency, since the 2004 vintage, on the 90 hectares of vineyards that includes the estate, only 4 hectares were selected from the best parcels of Merlot. A batch of excellence then took birth under the name “LES LAURETS – BARON EDMOND DE ROTHSCHILD”
