Tasting Note:

Gruaud Larose has not exactly been setting the world alight recently. This Second Growth really should be doing better. The 2018 is hardly likely to set hearts a flutter. It's solid rather than spectacular. Slightly murky fruit, raspberry and blackcurrant leaf. There's some good underlying fruit but not much complexity. Solid grippy tannins hold this together - it should come good, but there are more noble St Juliens available. 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc.
