Bordeaux 2023: Château Laroque

24 May 2024

Laroque Star

Just before Bordeaux decamps to Hong Kong for Vinexpo and the primeur campaign takes a short breather, we have time for one last release. Château Laroque has gone from complete anonymity to J&B favourite in the space of a few years.

David Suire has transformed the fortunes of this St Emilion with a succession of highly rated, extremely impressive wines.

This year, both Neal Martin and Antonio Galloni heap praise on this “superb” St Emilion, awarding it 94-96 points; not too shabby for a £20 bottle! We too were enthralled by the 2023 rendition, a more transparent, fine boned example packed with bright fruits, flowers and minerals. We believe this will be a joy to drink relatively young and will stand the test of time. It certainly gets the Justerinis’ seal of approval!

“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."94-96/100, Neal Martin,

“The 2023 Laroque might be the best wine David Suire has made since taking over here a few years ago. What I admire most about Laroque is its classicism—there is plenty of that on display here. Bright acids and persistent beams of supporting tannin frame dark-toned fruit, lavender, rose petal, graphite and sweet spice in a Saint-Émilion that impresses with its vibrancy and delineation. Superb. Tasted two times. 2033-2053”94-96/100, Antonio Galloni,
