 Saint Julien Protected Designation of Origin, and Second Great Classed Growth.

The wines of Chateau Gruaud Larose

Jean Merlaut has been the chateau Gruaud Larose owner since 1997. Saint Julien Second Grand Cru Classe (Classification of 1855), this estate is located in the Bordeaux region, on the left bank of the Gironde. Gruaud Larose's motto is written on the label: "le vin des roisle roi des vins,", meaning "the wine of kings, the king of wines". The estate covers 82 hectares of vines growing on deep clay-gravel soils from the Garonne River. The vines are about 46 years old and are grown according to the sustainable winegrowing method.

Chateau Gruaud Larose produces 2 Bordeaux red wine cuvees, including Gruaud Larose's Great Wine, and a second wine called "les Sargets de Gruaud Larose" that is made from young vines that haven't been selected for the Great Wine cuvee. Both cuvees are made from a blend of 4 grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (61% of the vineyard), Merlot (29%), Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (10%). Gruaud Larose's first wine has been one of the most structured and low to evolve Saint Julien wines for a long time; it became more supple and a very distinguished from the early 1990s vintages. Today, Gruaud Larose's wine is less austere and tannic in his youth than it used to be. In their best vintages, the prestige cuvee is intense, rich and powerful, but its mouth-filling structure is full of fine and silky tannins that bring length to the wine's flavours. It has a great ageing potential: Gruaud Larose's bottles can be kept in the cellar for about 10 years. Here are Gruaud Larose's best vintages: 201520102009200520001990198619821961... The estate's second wine, “Les Sargets de Gruaud Larose”, displays a softer and fruitier profile and doesn't need to be kept that long in the cellar to be appreciated. As many second wines, this is a great introduction to Chateau Gruaud Larose's Great Wine, for a much lower price.
