Château Gruaud Larose 2006

SKU:1025/06 Bordeaux - Saint-Julien - Red - 13° - More Info

Gruaud-Larose 2006 displays an intense ruby-tinted, red garnet colour. The nose is powerful with fresh fruit notes: strawberries, garrigue scents, toasts, and musk. The forward, powerful attack of this Saint-Julien reveals a solid structure, and opens up on fluctuations of power and elegance at the end. The finish is marked by length and young tannins that will smooth out over the years.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Gruaud Larose can be a divisive wine. At ten years of age, it shows some inertia on the nose: sultry blackberry and briary fruit, nicely defined but lacking what I call flow. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty tannin, rather rustic red berry fruit laced with sandalwood and tar, fading a little towards the soft, easy-going finish. Not bad...but I have encountered many superior wines from this Saint Julien estate. Tasted January 2016.
