Herve Laroque

- The outsider  

The oldest bottles labeled Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque date from the vintage 1890, and the Herve’s family still owns a few bottles!

Chateau Hervé-Laroque, the second wine of the estate, is made from the same grapes and care but offers a different and more accessible expression of the terroir.
