Located only 1.2 km from the medieval town of Saint Emilion, Château Larmande is one of the appellation's most ancient estates. The local archives mention its existence going back at least as far 1585. The diversity of soils (clay-limestone, clay-siliceous, and ancient sand) accounts for the fact that Larmande is such a well balanced and distinguished wine. Château Larmande's state-of-the-art cellar (renovated in early 2003 and used for the first time this year) has proved to be eminently functional and well-designed. The wine is barrel-aged for 15-18 months. Careful attention is paid not only to winemaking, but also to the choice of barrels. The end result is a wine of great finesse.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Make no mistake about it, this is a good wine, but I had expected more of this impeccably run property. A deep ruby/purple-colored effort displaying notes of dried herbs, licorice, black fruits, and toasty oak, the medium to full-bodied, elegant 2000 is not complex, but is well-made and savory. It possesses low acidity as well as noticeable tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2014.
