The Château Gruaud-Larose is a Bordeaux wine located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle. AOC Saint-Julien, it is classified second growth in the Medoc classification of 1855.Château Gruaud-Larose's vineyard is composed of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec.
At the last tasting, gentle, yet full of fruit and drank well.
This is another typically hard, muscular, closed, angular, acid 1970, apparently without the extract and concentration to balance the tannins. Gruaud Larose 1970-The remains dusty and rough with Brett considerable (the spoilage yeast that technocrats find appalling). I'm not sure that this wine will never become fully mature. Although an attractive leathery, smoky nose earthy flavors are hard and coarse.
Deep ruby, spicy aromas of tobacco and cassis nose, elegant, strong, evolved blackcurrant and cedar flavors, fairly complete.
