Château Gruaud-Larose Saint-Julien 2001
Origin: Saint-Julien, Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Blend: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 1.5% Malbec
Clear. Garnet red. The nose is fresh, subtle combining red fruit, prune à l’eau de vie, dry fig and cocoa. Frank, rich attack, good body with fatness. The tannins are still
present but are beginning to mature giving place to roundness and finesse. Beautiful length.
Enjoy it now or lay it down. (2011)
