CHATEAU GRUAUD LAROSE - SAINT JULIEN - 2016

Chateau Gruaud-Larose is a 2eme Cru Classe property that produces one of St-Julien's most full-bodied and long-lived wines. For many years Gruaud-Larose was owned by the negociants Cordier, who also own Chateau Talbot. It was sold in 1993 to the French conglomerate, Alcastel Alstom, which in turn sold it to the Taillan Group, owners of Chasse-Spleen and Haut-Bages-Liberal, in 1997. The talented Georges Pauli has remained as regisseur and winemaker throughout all these changes. Gruaud-Larose has 84 hectares of vineyards located on a gravel-rich plateau just to the west of Chateau Beychevelle. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%). Vinification takes place in a mixture of wooden vats and cement tanks and the wine is aged in oak barriques (30% new) for 18 months. Gruaud-Larose can be tannic and ungainly in youth but with bottle ageing it becomes marvellously harmonious and develops complex and beguiling characteristics of concentrated black fruits, cedar, spices and liquorice.

Tasting Notes
The Chateau Gruaud Larose 2016 expresses on the nose a generous aromatic palette, characterised by plenty of black fruits (blackberries), along with woody and empyreumatic notes (tobacco). Medium-bodied, the palate struts tons of elegantly fragrant fruit flavors with a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. On the palate, this Bordeaux red wine presents fine tannins and perfect acidity (indicating a grand potential to age). On the finish, the Chateau Gruaud Larose 2016 is remarkably intense, precise and extremely long.
