Château Gruaud-Larose, Cru Classé St-Julien 2006
From this renowned 2ème Cru St-Julien estate, 2006 Château Gruaud Larose is an absolute appellation classic and of a vintage that has since grown in reputation since being initially overshadowed by the 2005. As such, and now in its drinking window, here is supreme drinking pleasure to the Left Bank afficionado.
"Deep, intense brambly fruit unfurls gently over the palate. Not yet reached its tertiary stage but this knows where it is going, and doesn't mind taking a pause before softly sliding towards autumnal flavours. Tannins have a little extra bite on the finish. A very classy, classic St-Julien." Drink 2016-2035,93 pts. Jane Anson, Decanter
