    A fine red wine from Saint-Julien

    The estate
    A historical reference of the Saint-Julien appellation, Chateau Gruaud Larose was founded in 1757, when different estates merged. The property received its current name when the heir of Joseph Gruaud added "Larose" to his name, thus becoming Chateau Gruaud Larose. Acquired by the Merlaut family in 1997, Chateau Gruaud Larose embodies the excellence of the fine red wines of Saint-Julien and seduces fans of the appellation with its signature style.

    The vineyard
    Enjoying a superb location in the Saint-Julien appellation, the Chateau Gruaud Larose vineyard covers 82 hectares of Quaternary Garonne gravel soils, more than 600,000 years old. The vines are 46 years old on average. The vineyard of Chateau Gruaud Larose is managed with sustainable viticultural practices that show respect to the environment, such as soil ploughing, the use of organic fertilizers, planting hedges, grassing the vine rows and introducing sheep to graze the latter.

    The vintage
    Following a rainy winter and a mild March, the budding of the vines started early. Due to the proximity of the vineyard to the Gironde, the Chateau Gruaud Larose vineyards were only slightly affected by the frost in April. The very hot weather in July and August dried out the vineyard after the threat of downy mildew. Thanks to the summer storms, excess water stress was avoided. The harvest began with Merlot on September 20 and ended on October 8 with Cabernet.

    The aging
    Aged in oak barrels for 14 months at least (15% new French oak and the rest barrels of 1 or 2 previous wines).

    The blend
    Cabernet sauvignon
    (48%), merlot (37%), cabernet franc (8%), petit verdot (7%).
