ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 2eme Cru Classe. Chateau Gruaud-Larose has had a bit of turbulent time over the years it use to belong to the Cordier group who in turn owns chateau Talbot. It was sold in 1993 and again in 1997 to the same group as Chasse-Spleen and Haut Bages Liberal.The wine is aged in a mixture of new oak for 18 months, wooden vat and cement thanks before blending.Can be quite tannic when young but will soften with age.

ABOUT THE VINTAGE
The wines are deep, round, rich, ripe. In the left bank, after a cold and wet winter, the new growing season started rather well with a hot dry and sunny June and July. And then things change for the worse with a cool and wet August. By the time harvest was about to start both right and left bank were affected by rain on a daily basis. Only Pomerol was saved as they always start harvesting ahead of the rest.
