Château Gruaud-Larose 2010 shows a shiny, violet-tinted garnet colour as well as a rich, intense nose dominated by elegant wood notes. Vanilla, coffee, and spices, coated with blackcurrant touches convey the exotic nature of the wine. Due to young age, wood flavours command a luscious palate that reveals ripe fruits sustained with chocolate and mocha. Château Gruaud-Larose 2010 exhibits power, classical elegance, remarkable finesse, and steady balance. Born in an exceptional year for Cabernets Sauvignons, this is definitely one of the greatest vintage of the chateau.
