The grape varieties are 50% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc & 2% Petit-Verdot. The cultivation practices are traditional, reasoned, very concerned with the balance and well-being of the soil, the plant and the auxiliary fauna. The pruning is practiced in double Guyot. However, it is reasoned at the foot, a particular attention is paid to the aeration and the spreading of the branches. The winegrowers are in continuous training on this subject. The harvest is done by hand, in 10 kg crates.
The vinification of this wine is done in cement and stainless steel tanks, then the maturation is done during 12 months. Generally, the blend of Château Tour de Laroze is composed of an average of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.
