Winemaker's Notes

Over nearly 300 years, Gruaud Larose has produced some iconic wines made of finesse when young and of elegance after a long aging and always with an underlying powerful structure. In that sense, every vintage reminds us that Gruaud is the soil, the tannins and the terroir, and Larose is poetry, aromas and bouquet.

Critical Acclaim

"This has the plump richness typical of Gruaud, its potent extract fragrant with blueberry and tobacco in a standoff between the green and black. The tannins are hidden behind all that fruit, not at all obvious, softened to chocolate scents. This should be at its best around 10 years from the vintage."
