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.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010
($47-$60) Ruby-red. Rather wild aromas of cassis, game, roast coffee, dried flowers, dried herbs and dark chocolate. Sweet and fairly round if a bit youthfully tight, with good power and thrust to its fla vors of currant, herbs, leather and game. The tannins began sweet but showed a slight dryness with aeration.
