Lady Laroze – St Emilion Grand Cru 2015
Discount per Quantity
In 1882 M et Mme Georges Gurchy bought three little vineyards, put them together and founded the family estate of Laroze; at this time, it was 15 hectares wide (37 acres). Two years later, in 1885, they built the chateau with its cellars and vat house. They were succeeded by their son Maurice, then their granddaughter Andree, who later married a doctor Meslin.
Their son Georges took charge of the running of the estate for 40 years, reorganised it under his own name and ensured its development. His efforts and those of earlier generations were rewarded in the 1955 Saint-Emilion classification. The location of the vineyard and the quality of its wines earned Chateau Laroze Grand Cru Classe status.
On the retirement of his father, Guy Meslin has been in charge of the family estate since 1990. In his forty years at the helm of Laroze, my father Georges Meslin brought the estate together under a common name, increased its size, and built its sales network and the quality of a Grand Cru Classe. In the fantastic 1990’s, we modernised the estate and all its facilities. The result today is a resounding success with an exceptional winegrowing unit.
