Tasting Note:

Gruaud Larose has been underachieving for many years. It certainly hasn't warranted its 2nd Growth status, however, the 2021 may be a turning point. The blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by 12% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, with just 12.5% alcohol appears to have found the right formular. Floral fragrance of pot pourri, violets and blackcurrant bushes. A core of purple, creamy fruit, there's some good clarity and drive here. Still not at the level of the top second growths, but this is a marked improvement and should provide much drinking pleasure.
