The property in brief

Jean-Noël Hervé has done much for the glory of Fronsac thanks to the exemplary consistency of his Château Moulin Haut Laroque. One-third of the vines is more than 45 years old, which explains in part the particular finesse of this cru. Jean-Noël Hervé seeks – and finds – concentration, matière and fabulous harmony from Merlot which has been harvested “ripe-but-not-too-much”, as he likes to say, because he’s not a fan of over-maturity. The matière is sublime, complex, even in difficult vintages. A great wine.
