Chateau Gruaud Larose Grand Cru MAGNUM
Out of stock
A cool start to the year resulted in a late budburst. Dry spring and flowering in good conditions. July was very hot, leading to a stop in the vegetative growth before a
precocious beginning of veraison. A cool and cloudy August provoked a veraison spread over quite some time. A favourable climate at the end of maturation, during
the first and last decades of September. Clear, intense. Dark ruby-red colour. Powerful nose, overtones of fresh fruit, strawberry, hints of scrub, toast and musk. Frank, powerful attack, very structured offering a fine balance at the finish – powerful yet elegant. Long finish marked by tannins that are still young. To be laid down.
