2012 Ch. Gruaud-Larose, St Julien

Sold Out

2012 is a very solid showing for this historic Second Growth. A meaty, toasty nose is balanced with currants and blueberry. The palate is fleshier and more forward than many, with generous fruit but enough tannins to keep everything in check. Plum and cherry fruit is coated by a creamy spice from the oak and this is a very generous effort that may very well drink sooner than most. If the pricing is as competitive as usual from the Château, then this is one to keep in mind. Hong Kong Fine Wine Team
