The 2014 Laforge has an attractive bouquet with raspberry coulis, wild strawberry, and light Asian spice notes, the oak nicely integrated here with commendable purity. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, fresh in the mouth with crisp red cherry, raspberry, Chinese five spice, and a pinch of cumin. I appreciate the focus and detail here and this Saint Emilion should drink well over the next 8-10 years.
"Chateau Laforge is JCP Maltus' most senior Château or blended wine. It is made in the style of our Single Vineyard wines – including the cropping levels. It also represents his wine with the largest amount of Merlot – as Andrew Jefford, the writer, stated – “Maltus’s Merlot babe”!
It used to be called Petit Mauvinon, a pretty uninspiring name. When they bought the Château in 1998 they asked if it had any other names allowed and up popped Château Laforge. On top of that, the previous owner’s grandfather used to be the local blacksmith!"
