Gruaud Larose 2005

Gruaud Larose

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 92.0

A 2ème Cru Classé, Château Gruaud-Larose is famous for producing one of Saint-Julien’s most full-bodied wines. Highly tannic in its youth, this is a wine that fully opens-up and blossoms with age, to form an abundant blend of rich black fruits, cedar and liquorice flavours. The estate’s 80 hectares of vineyard comprise a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (c.65%), Merlot (c.25%), Cabernet Franc (c.8%) and Petit Verdot (c.2%). Based in Saint-Julien, the terroir benefits from dry soil and a warm climate from the July to September period. To Gruaud Larose, following organic and biodynamic agricultural practices is essential in assuring that their vines continue to thrive.

Some autumn leaves on the nose and some fine tannin – and life and potential!

Jane Anson

Stately ruby red, raspberry and cassis fruits, still young, needs another few years to fully open and integrate, but everything is there for a brilliant wine with pleasure. This is a château that always takes its time, and needs half an hour in the glass to reveal smoked vanilla bean, sweet raspberry puree, turmeric spice, fresh acidity and crushed mint. Not showing quite as well as it did at a château vertical last year, but this is still a wonderful wine, and is one to look out for. Harvest September 20 to October 11, 35% new oak.
