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.
88-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2013
Medium deep ruby-purple. Perfumed, refined aromas and flavors of black cherry, spicy dark plum, licorice, cedar and ink. Smooth and quite long on the finish. Gruaud was one of the rare properties in 2012 where petit verdot managed to ripen fully. In fact, the grand vin contains 6.5% petit verdot, Gruaud's entire crop from these vines.
