2020 Château Gruaud-Larose Sarget de Gruaud Larose
Château Gruaud-Larose is a wine estate in Bordeaux and a second cru in the Bordeaux wine classification system of 1855. It is located in the village of Saint-Julien. For a long time it was one of the most important chateaux of the village, overshadowed only by the - originally undivided - Léoville. This cru, located behind Ch. Branaire Ducru and next to Ch. Lagrange, enjoys a wonderful terroir of rock deposits (from the Gironde, 700,000 years ago). It has belonged to the Merlaut family since 1997 and in recent years the wines have received very high ratings without exception and their Gruaud-Larose is above all a super feminine, refined and delicate, but beautifully concentrated St. Julien. The vineyards are (or are in conversion) to organic viticulture.
The Sarget Gruaud Larose is the 2nd wine of Chateau Gruaud Larose and as so often with a 2nd wine, the price / quality is certainly excellent compared to the 1st wine. The Sarget de Gruaud Larose is composed of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, supplemented with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and has a deep red color with purple-black shades in the glass. On the nose, the wine has vibrant aromas of blueberries, warm plums and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of mocha, a little leather and a hint of potpourri. Medium to full bodied on the palate with a backbone of fine grained tannins and good freshness that ends perfectly with a long finish. Neal Martin of Vinous writes in his review " ....but with very commendable length for a Deuxième Vin. Very fine "
