Château Gruaud Larose 2010

Chteau Gruaud Larose 2010

Ref: A037810

2eme Cru Classé St. Julien

"Dark garnet/plum/purple, with loads of spice, earth, underbrush, red and black currants, licorice, and even a hint of Provencal garrigue, this full-bodied, tannic, masculine style of St.-Julien needs 5-6 years of cellaring, but is full, beefy, rich and impressively endowed. There are plenty of firm tannins in the background of this blockbuster wine, which has been built for the long haul. This is one 2010 where patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040." Parker

In 1757, Mr. Gruaud grouped a number of small vineyards together to form one large one, under his name. Eventually a descendant of the first owner took over the property. His name was Larose, and he immediately linked his name to the estate, bought by Mr. Desire Cordier in 1915. Managed under the direction of Mr. Georges Pauly, the highly respected director of Domaines Cordier, Gruaud Larose is one of St. Julien's most popular wines. Its large production has a quality that is consistently very high. One of the most continuously successful wines produced in Bordeaux, regardless of vintage.

The wines are full bodied, but elegant with lots of fruit when young. They age very well and develop all the characteristics of a great Bordeaux, tending to be smoother and more elegant than many contempories. The 1997 is
a delicious wine characterized by elegant and generous aromas of black fruits, smoke and herbs.
