Château Gruaud-Larose, Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien
- Bordeaux, France
Gruaud Larose has always tried to give value to the role of man in the creation of its elixir; both to his work and to the bond established with the vineyard.
Since its creation, in 1725, four families have succeeded one another at the head of Gruaud Larose: the Gruaud and Larose families, the Balguerie and Sarget families, the Cordier family and the Merlaut family. This family attachment has been passed on to the employees who often work at the chateau from father to son and from mother to daughter.
Deep, red colour with purplish highlights. The nose is very ripe with aromas of black fruit, wild strawberries and black cherry. Overtones of lime-tree flowers combined with roasting. The mouth is rich, ample, powerful and spicy. A beautiful balance and a long finish
"The second wine of Gruaud-Larose, farmed organically. Not overblown. Well mannered with an undertow of the drama of the vintage. Throbs a bit on the palate." 16 pts, Jancis Robinson
