Winemaker's Notes:

When young, the wine reveals aromas of red fruit. After being kept for 5 years, aromas of leather and cocoa are associated with the red fruits which are still present. The tannins become more silky, and the wine reveals all its complexity. La Grolet belongs to Côtes de Bourg wines, and there is a definite tannic background, but professionals' comments are unanimous: La Grolet reveals a subtlety which is rarely seen in wines from this appellation. Could it be the effect of the influential Biodynamism of the great wine-producing regions giving this particular quality to this wine?
My Notes:

About Château La Grolet:

Set in a landscape worthy of the "Petite Suisse Girondine", the vineyard extends over 28 hectares across a series of mainly craggy and south facing hills and terraces conditions that produce fully mature grapes of the highest quality.
