Tasting Notes: "The colour is brilliant and clear. The powerful nose reveals notes of roasting and leather. The second nose releases notes of jammy prunes. The mouth shows silky tannins, balance and freshness. Great aromatic persistency." - Winery Vineyard: "A plot that has remained under vines since the 18th century, without ever breaking with its viticultural vocation, deserves to be held in the highest esteem. Its worth remains undisputed among both yesterday's and today's winemakers. The average age of the vines of Gruaud Larose is about forty years, although the most ancient ones are almost a hundred years old. Time imposes humility. Claiming the exceptional is to be able to recognise the perfect harmony between the existence of a terroir and the quality of the grape varieties. The planted grape varieties are a daily and effective search for creation and harmony. Today, the Gruaud Larose vineyard is composed of the noble Bordeaux varieties, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Petit Verdot (3%)." - Winery [+]
