Chateau Gruaud Larose – St Julien 2016

RM582.0

The 2016 Gruaud Larose is blended of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with notes of red and black cherries, warm plums and freshly crushed blackcurrants plus hints of violets, oolong tea, aniseed and tilled soil with a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied, the palate struts tons of elegantly fragrant red and black fruit flavors with a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

Description

Gruaud Larose takes its name from two families who have played a key role in the estate’s history. In the 1700s it was purchased by Joseph Stanislas Gruaud whose descendants later developed a cunning sales strategy at auction; if the wine did not sell they simply increased the price until they found a buyer.

In 1997 the chateau was purchased by Jacques Merlaut whose family estates also includes some excellent Cru Bourgeois in the Medoc, a ranking which covers high quality estates not listed in the 1855 Classification. Although founded in 1725 and relatively youthful compared to many of Bordeaux’s top chateau, Gruaud Larose was rewarded for its superb wines with the second growth status in 1855.
Today the estate is considered a “Super Second” thanks to the extensive efforts of the Merlaut family to produce excellent wines which often rival the First Growths. Gruaud Larose is known for producing some of Saint-Julien’s most ageworthy and full-bodied wines which develop beautifully in the bottle.
