Château Gruaud-Larose

Château Gruaud Larose is a 2ème cru classé property that produces one of St Julien's most full-bodied and long-lived wines. It owns 84 hectares of vineyards located on a gravel-rich plateau, just west of Château Beycheville.

Another standout wine from this super 2nd growth. Refined, elegant and seamless, there is a high degree of concentrated black and red fruits, vanilla and spice that are centred within a dark and dense structure of tannins, wood, minerality and acidity. This is a big wine, yet the sensation is still one of refinement and elegance. A measured alcohol of 12.62%.
Pair with classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.
Harvest dates: 11th September - 3rd October. The wine is vinified in a combination of cement tanks and wood vats. A portion of the malolactic fermentation takes in place in French, oak barrels (about 35%). The remainder of the malolactic fermentation takes place in a combination of cement vats and oak tanks. The wine of Chateau Gruaud Larose is then aged in 95% new, French oak barrels for about 18 months. Alc 12.62%.
