(01-1998) This is a typical Gruaud-Larose: dark-colored, ripe, with fat, fruity, meaty flavors suggestive of herbs, plums, and black cherries. In the mouth, the wine has full body, medium-soft tannins, and a supple, smooth finish. Because of its forward charms, it is undeniably appealing now.

(02-1991) Very young appearance, still deep purple. Cedar and tobacco nose, with a black truffle nuance and minty notes. Very firm and tannic; tight and unevolved, though a fruity undertone is evident.

Gruaud Larose

The Chateau Gruaud-Larose is a Bordeaux wine located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle. AOC Saint-Julien, it is ranked second growth in the Grand Cru classification of 1855 


(>> see article "Grands Crus Classés from Bordeaux, Official Classification of 1855").


Château Gruaud-Larose's vineyard is composed of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. The wine stays for 16 to 18 months in oak barrels in new mediums at 35%. Some great vintages have remained exceptional in Gruaud-Larose, as in all of Bordeaux, such as 196119821986 or 1989. This important area with extremely rare homogeneity is implanted on 80 hectares of single piece of deep gravel rumps . It produces the largest and most robust Saint-Julien, a wine of great class and very long guard, raised until 1991 under the direction of Georges Pauli, who has exalted his characteristic style under several successive owners.
