We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Available for:
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.

For 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.

This 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.

This gets my nod as the finest Gruaud Larose since the 2000 and 1990. The opaque purple-colored 2010 exhibits copious notes of Asian plum sauce, spice box, creme de cassis, loamy soil and a beefy/meaty character. It is full-bodied, dense and powerful, with stunning purity and no evidence of brett (a characteristic of the great Gruaud Larose wines made in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s). Given the 2010's tannin profile, it will require 5-8 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades thereafter.
