    Medium intensity ruby, this is a little reserved at first, in the best way, in that it has the hidden depths that are just so promising during En Primeur, real sense of sapidity, squid ink, violet reflections, extremely vibrant, really like this, blueberry, sage, slate, lift on the finish, delicious.

    The 2023 Laroque has an outstanding bouquet that shades many of its peers. It conveys transparency and mineralité at a higher level and leaves you wanting more. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that frame the pure black cherry and raspberry fruit. There is structure here, and the finish is notably longer than other wines of its class. This is very impressive, and I can imagine it aging with style.

    David Suire’s Laroque is an outstanding St Emilion, which for the time being is still a relative bargain. Not many clarets at just over £20 per bottle can boast scores in the mid-nineties, yet Laroque has achieved this feat in three consecutive vintages:2018, 2019 and 2020. The wines are concentrated, but not overblown, with a real sense of harmony and balance. Although it is a huge estate, only about half of the production makes it into the grand vin.
