After successive ownership including négociants Cordier who also owned Château Talbot at the time, Château Gruaud Larose is today in the hand of the Taillan Group, owners of many estate including Chasse-Spleen and Haut-Bages-Libéral.
A big tannic structure makes the wine of Gruaud-Larose needing time to be fully enjoyed. Fortunately, their second wine, Sarget de Gruaud Larose, can be appreciated in its youth. Aromas of black fruit, cedar, spice and liquorice. Full-bodied with well integrated tannic structure and a good length.
Freshness and brightness with just a hint of herb to the currant and floral undertones. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish.- 90 pts James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
