2015 Gruaud Larose 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 93+ points
Drink by: 2022 - 2041
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Gruaud Larose simply sparkles with bright, vibrant red cherries, ripe raspberries and fresh black currants notes with underlying suggestions of cinnamon stick, rose petals, fallen leaves and dried Provence herbs.
Medium to full-bodied and possessing tightly wound red and black fruits layers intermingled with spicy accents, it has a firm, grainy frame and great vivacity, finishing long and perfumed.
I'm probably being too conservative with my score here and expect this could blossom in 4-6 years into an even more impressive beauty!
"Gruaud Larose has always tried to give value to the role of man in the creation of its elixir; both to his work and to the bond established with the vineyard.
The vine stocks and the grapes are nothing without man, without these makers of crus, from the most modest to the most powerful. Since its creation, in 1725, four families have succeeded one another at the head of Gruaud Larose: the Gruaud and Larose families, the Balguerie and Sarget families, the Cordier family, and the Merlaut family. This family attachment has been passed on to the employees who often work at the Château from father to son and from mother to daughter."
