From 20% of the production, the 2016 Les Tours de Laroque is a beautifully elegant, silky second wine that has terrific cassis and black raspberries fruits, subtle tobacco and earthy mineral notes as well as a hint of spring flowers. Elegant, medium-bodied, seamless and incredibly silky, it will keep for a decade or more.

Focused and pure aromas of blueberries and blackcurrants with plenty of flowers, such as violets. Full-bodied, firm and velvety with firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink from 2022.
