Fresh and spicy, delicate vanilla wood dominate still subtle red cherry and blackberry notes. Rich and scrumptious, the palate offers robust intensity and considerable length along with fine, delicate and persistent tannins. Gruaud-Larose 2009 perfect balance adds this release to the greatest wines ever produced by the Chateau.
