About Chateau Gruaud Larose
This "Super Second" began its life in 1725 under the direction of the Gruaud brothers. One a magistrate, and the other a priest, together they owned 116 hectares of gravelly soil in southern St. Julien.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011
Good medium red. Plum, redcurrant, tobacco and a whiff of camphor on the nose, with a faint green quality building with air. Lush and supple, showing the slightly horsey, leathery quality typical of this property's wine. Nicely light on its feet, though. Finishes slightly dry, with a fine dusting of tannins.
