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.

Very youthful deep ruby-red color. Brooding nose offers perfumed blackcurrant, mineral, violet and quinine aromas. Big, dense and rich, conveying an impression of strong extract to the powerful, well-delineated blackberry and herb flavors. The long, tactile finish features chewy but polished tannins and a lingering floral note. Though ready to drink now, this wine will continue to age gracefully. One of the best Gruaud-Larose wines of the past 40 years.
