Larose de Gruaud St. Julien 2011


SKU 17252


The wine is very pure. The tannins are powerful and "tasty" with a good acidity giving it great freshness. One does not feel any strong alcohol thanks to a higher level of acidity than usual and also thanks to the complexity of the tannins. With such balance, barrel ageing will add complexity to the wine.

Wine AdvocateRich, evolved, cedary, black currant and cherry fruit are present in this dark ruby-colored 2011. With medium body, pleasant ripeness and fruitiness, good purity and depth but no herbaceousness or hardness, it has a precocious, flattering, up-front appeal that suggests it will drink well for 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorLightly firm, with iron and plum pit notes running alongside the core of black cherry and red currant fruit. An iron twinge keeps the finish on the taut side. Drink now through 2018. 10,000 cases made.
