Château Gruaud Larose

Château Gruaud Larose is situated on the Saint Julien terroir just next to the village of Beychevelle, slightly deviated from the “Route des Chateaux”. While the surface of the appellation is quite small it assembles the greatest concentration of Cru Classé wines in the Medoc. The vineyard is stretching over 82 hectares of gravely soil overlaying calcareous clay which gives a fine wine with character. As a result, it was classified Second Grand Cru in 1855. This is one of the few estates that comprises the same vineyards as they did at the time of the 1855 classification. Old vintages from the 60s and 80s prove what this terroir is capable of. After a dip in form at the beginning of the Millennium, the estate is back on track producing wines of second growth quality.
