Chevalier de Gruaud Larose Saint-Julien 2000
Smoother and riper than the previous vintage, this wine has subtle leathery notes in its bouquet along with some chocolate and coffee. Good tannic structure and tight acidity.
A fabulous second wine from Gruaud Larose. In 1757, Mr. Gruaud grouped a number of small vineyards together to form one large one, under his name. Eventually, a descendant of the first owner took over the property. His name was Larose, and he immediately linked his name to the estate. Gruaud Larose is one of St. Julien's most popular wines. Its large production has a quality that is consistently very high.
