  • What are the specificities of Château Gruaud Larose?

Château Gruaud-Larose, owned by the Merlaut family, is a wine estate located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, in Gironde. It extends over 82 hectares of vines planted on a superb gravelly hillock and produces about 450,000 bottles per year.

 

The label leaves no room for ambiguity by proclaiming: "The king of wines, the wine of kings". And there is nothing usurped in this century-old self-proclamation. Gruaud-Larose develops a power that some people reproach him for. The wine, it is true, is ten years overdue. The purchase by the Taillan group in 1997 completed and refined the winemaking methods that now make Château Gruaud-Larose a wine that has gained in finesse. The talents of Georges Pauli, the winemaker, have allowed a faultless course over the last thirty years, just marrying, by correcting them somewhat, the small years. It is an exceptional wine.

 

Château Gruaud Larose, Second Grand Cru Classé of Bordeaux in 1855 in the Saint-Julien appellation, is a wine made from a blend of 4 different grape varieties: 

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 61% 
  • Merlot 29%, and 
  • Cabernet Franc 5 
  • Petit Verdot 5%

 

Château Gruaud Larose has kept its original size and its mythical red wine is produced from vines that are on average 43 years old. 

The result of a long winegrowing tradition always focused on the search for excellence, Château Gruaud Larose offers a wine of legendary finesse for tasting. 

  

  • Vinification and aging 

The wine is aged in French oak barrels (90% new) for 18 months. A meticulous production providing an exceptional wine. The wines of Château Gruaud Larose perfectly combine generosity and concentration. Wines of Saint-Julien with a superb potential of guard.  

Château Gruaud Larose also produces a Second Wine since 1979: "Sarget de Gruaud Larose". Its second wine benefits from the same care given to its great wine. It is also aged in barrels. Its quantity varies from one year to another but represents on average 150 000 to 200 000 bottles.  

The best bottles of Château Gruaud-Larose are available for purchase on Comptoir des Millésimes.

Anecdotes from the estate 

  • The estate's sheep spend the winter weeding the vines, then spend the summer in the shade of the poplars weeding the marshes.
  • For several years, the Gruaud Larose team has installed 4 beehives in the south of the vineyard, set up on a voluntarily untended patch of vegetation in order to encourage biodiversity in the vineyard.
  • The team regularly inspects the level of the old Gruaud Larose vintages kept on the estate, as well as the corks. The winemakers lightly hand-seal certain bottles when necessary. This allows the wine to be preserved and to have the best conditions of conservation. On this occasion, they also replace some corks that will remain for the next 2 to 3 decades. A professional job.
