Chateau Gruaud Larose 2011, Saint Julien (2nd Cru Classe En 1855)

RM594.00

Second cru classé en 1855

Photo shown is actual label condition.

Grape Variety:

Cabernet Sauvignon 61%, Merlot 29%, Cabernet Franc 7%, Petit Verdot 3%

Tasting Notes:

The wine is very pure. The tannins are powerful and “tasty” with a good acidity giving it great freshness. One does not feel any strong alcohol thanks to a higher level of acidity than usual and also thanks to the complexity of the tannins. With such balance, barrel ageing will add complexity to the wine.
