SKU 00057


Shiny, garnet red colour with purplish highlights. The nose is very complex and intense. It evolves from elegant exotic aromas: sandalwood, notes of vanilla, spices, coffee, piquillos finishing on a note of blackcurrant jelly. The mouth is delicious. One perceives notes of ripe fruit, dark chocolate and mocha. The wine is rich and powerful. Great finesse and elegance. Fine balance. Among the greatest vintages of Chateau Gruaud Larose.

Wine EnthusiastFor anybody looking for classic Bordeaux, this is the bottle to seek. "Classic" here means a wine with a tannic structure that also relies on a black currant flavor, with acidity providing freshness but not losing any concentration or aging potential. Keep for many years.

Wine SpectatorThis is distinctive, with an aromatic roasted alder wood streak leading the way, quickly followed by dense but sleek blackberry cobbler, currant paste and warm plum sauce notes. Well-polished through the finish, offering deeply embedded acidity. Best from 2015 through 2030.
