Chateau Gruaud Larose 2009, St. Julien,750ml


Château Gruaud-Larose 2009 - St-Julien 

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot 
Ageing: 18 months in oak barrels (30% new)        

The Wine 
It has dense aromas of smoky black fruits and purple plums,
underlying the rich ripe fruit. Great concentration and persistence, beautifully harmonious, developing complex and intriguing characteristics on the palate, superb tannin structure, with an elegant, long lingering finish.

The Vineyards 
There are 84 hectares of vineyards located on a gravel-rich plateau just to the west of Château Beychevelle. 

History
For many years Gruaud-Larose was owned by the négociants Cordier, who also own Château 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-Libéral, in 1997. The talented Georges Pauli has remained as régisseur and winemaker throughout all these changes.
