How to serve

The Winery

Château Gruaud Larose

Château Gruaud Larose

Gruaud gets its inspiration from the soil, the tannins and the terroir. Larose brings poetry, aromas and bouquet. So could Abbé Gruaud have described his wine, a wine full of Elegance and Force. Château Gruaud Larose is different from other wines. Abbé Gruaud wanted it subtle, racy, comparable to the most beautiful artworks in the world. Year after year, we continue his work. Always timid and reserved when young, a Gruaud Larose slowly reveals its character. Sometimes showing a capricious nature, it decides one day to express its Force and then another day to reveal its Elegance. One says that it "is very Larose" when it is young, elegant and charmer. But this Larose hides a power that only faithful friends can feel. At the first approach, you feel charmed and wish to meet again to better know and discover its personality. Further talks and exchanges and then the wine tells you more about itself, it is like a revelation. Only at this point, you can perfectly perceive that the underlining and structuring force, due to a traditional and rigorous education, becomes elegance and refinement. Then, at its most beautiful age, the wine becomes poetry. Suddenly aromas and bouquet, the strong identity of both soil, tannins and terroir seem eternal like for the 1870 vintage.

Château Gruaud Larose Rouge 2007

4/5

Very dark Bordeaux colour. Slight smell of tea in this Saint-Julien.It tasted like grape juice.
The Château Gruaud Larose even grades up pairing it with a delicious Iberian ham.
I liked sharing this wine with someone special.

4/5

The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me. It wasn't too sweet, it liked me.
I recommend having it open for a while before drinking.
