Sarget de Gruaud-Larose, 2012 Saint-Julien
Origin: Saint-Julien, Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (61%), merlot (29%), cabernet franc (7%), petit verdot (3%)
Dark, intense colour. The nose is powerful with an explosion of fruit. Good attack, round and soft on the palate with countless flavours. It’s chewy with delicate tannins. It is starting to evolve beautifully in the barrels.
One of the most complicated vintages in 10 years.
