Château Gruaud Larose 2016 – 2ème Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Julien

The nose is fruity, elegant, fine, frank and offers straightness as well as a good structure. It reveals notes of ripe/fresh raspberry, ripe cassis and slight notes of blueberry associated with small touches of fleshy strawberry. The palate is fruity, juicy, gourmand, elegant, straight, well-balanced and offers fat, tension, a beautiful racy minerality, a beautiful definition, precision, a beautiful finesse, harmony as well as a beautiful silky matter and a small unctuosity in the middle-palate. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe/fleshy/fresh raspberry, fleshy/fresh cherry and slight notes of blueberry, cassis associated with slight notes of chocolate/tonka bean, discreet notes of caramelized oak and a discreet hint of cardamom. Tannins are fine and polished.
