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.
86-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
(70% cabernet sauvignon, 23% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc; 72 IPT; 13.5% alcohol) Inky-purple. Bright, floral, cabernet sauvignon-dominated nose offers red berry and mineral aromas. Then more red berries on the palate, with a saline nuance on the persistent, fleshy finish. Bright acidity really extends the flavors of red berries and underbrush. A smooth and very successful Sarget.
