"In 1838, Henry Delaroze, the owner of Châteaux Gruaud Larose and Château Larose Perganson, was mayor of Saint-Laurent du Médoc. As a great expert in Médoc crus he wanted to do something to make his mark, and so he created a new vineyard of 15.95 hectares on the land known as Trintaudon. It passed to Count Ernest de Lahens in 1858, a man of great ambition and vision, who developed the estate and extended it to some 345 hectares by 1872. Although his new cru Larose-Trintaudon rapidly rose to the ranks of a classified fifth cru, it was alas too late to be included in the 1855 classification of the wines of Bordeaux, a classification that would never be revised." -Winery
