Château Gruaud Larose 2016 is a red wine of great precision. It is considered as a second classified growth of the Saint-Julien appellation. The vines of Château Gruaud Larose are planted on 82 hectares of Garonne gravel soil. About 40 years old, these vines produce a high quality red Bordeaux wine. The 2016 vintage could have suffered the consequences of a rather bad climate: a mild and rainy winter conducive to early budburst and a cool spring with heavy rainfall conducive to diseases. Finally, a window of good weather allowed a perfect flowering while the summer came to block the vines at the beginning of September. A stormy episode in mid-September boosted the ripening of the berries and the harvest could begin.

Château Gruaud Larose 2016 blends 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. These grape varieties have been aged in barrels (80% of which are new) for between 18 and 24 months. The result is a wine developing generous aromas of black fruits, wood and tobacco. On the palate, the tannins are fine and the acidity perfect. The very long finish is precise and intense at the same time.
