Château Laniote is a renowned winery located in the Saint-Émilion appellation in the Bordeaux wine region of France. It is classified as a Grand Cru Classé, which is a prestigious classification for the wines of Saint-Émilion. Château Laniote is known for producing high-quality red wines that are highly sought after by wine collectors and connoisseurs.

The history of Château Laniote can be traced back to the 18th century when it was established as a vineyard. Over the years, it has changed hands and been owned by different families, but it has consistently maintained its reputation for producing excellent wines. Today, Château Laniote is owned by the family of the late Edouard Fortin, who acquired the estate in 1976 and made significant improvements to the vineyards and winemaking facilities.

The vineyards of Château Laniote cover around 8 hectares (19.8 acres) and are primarily planted with Merlot (80%), with smaller proportions of Cabernet Franc (10%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The vineyards are situated on the slopes of Saint-Émilion, which is known for its limestone-rich soils that contribute to the unique characteristics of the wines produced in the region.

The winemaking at Château Laniote follows traditional methods, with careful attention paid to the vineyard management, harvesting, and vinification processes. The grapes are hand-harvested and carefully sorted before fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wines are then aged in oak barrels, with a portion of them being new oak, to add complexity and structure to the final wines.

Tasting Notes

"The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Laniote gives up warm blackberries, blueberry compote and spice cake with cigar box and tilled soil plus hints of yeast extract and camphor. The medium-bodied palate is very youthful, chewy and earthy with cedar on the finish." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (11/30/2018, Interim Issue), Ratings: 91, Drink: 2019-2033

Notes on sale of Futures, Pre-Arrivals, and potential US Tariffs: 

1. As of June 15, 2021, the US and the EU agreed to suspend tariffs resulting from the Boeing-Airbus aircraft trade disputes. Accordingly, such tariffs are now suspended for the next five years.

2. Futures are expected to be available for delivery two years after the sales (e.g., the 2022 vintage, sold in 2023, will be delivered in 2025 mostly, or 2026 if the producer ages the wine longer).

3. Pre-Arrivals are items currently stored in our Bordeaux cellar or transit from France to the US. It usually takes 1-6 months for Pre-Arrivals to become available for delivery, depending on the stage of the import process.

4. Regarding futures and pre-arrivals, we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates, which factors beyond our control may impact. However, we will notify you once your wine arrives in our cellar.

5. While a buyer of Bordeaux wine futures locks in an allocation of the specified items, the final delivery of the purchased items from France to the US may be impacted by intervening and unforeseeable events. Despite our due diligence, additional costs or delays may be caused by such intervening and unforeseen events and "an irresistible, superhuman cause, or by the act of public enemies of the state of California or the United States."  In such events, if a buyer does not accept unforeseeable costs or delays, the sole and exclusive remedy is a cancellation of the futures order concerned and a refund of the original purchase price. We are NOT liable for any lost profits on a canceled order.
