Château Gruaud Larose

Château Gruaud Larose

Sarget de Gruaud Larose Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and floral herb notes. On the palate flavors of plum, black cherry and blackberry, with tobacco, cacao and smoky oak notes. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit and earthy mineral tones, almost starting to drink well but will last for the next 4-5 years. — 6 days ago

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1986

Similar profile to the Gruaud Larose where the 86 is my favorite vintage for this wine showing black & red fruits, cedar, leather, savory spice & tobacco. I liked the freshness & acidity of this. — 8 months ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

Blend of 79% Cabernet, 14% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, deep Ruby with rich fruit aromas. On the palate flavors of blackberry and currants, with notes of licorice, tobacco, some floral and spicy oak. Fine tannins, long finish, ending with fruit, oak and spice. Nice but needs more bottle age, should last another 10 years. Nice! — 6 days ago

Domaine Fleurot-Larose

Abbaye de Morgeot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

This wine is actually a 1er Cru Red Burgundy. Intense aromas of mushroom and clean freshly tilled earth. Dark cherry and raspberry fruit flavors with truffle notes and a nice “gamely” quality. Hint of mineral on the finish. Medium plus acidity. Deep red color. Barely translucent. Elegant! — 2 years ago

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Well stored bottle, No problems whatsoever Dark web info, Chateau Lalande Borie is a relatively new estate in the Medoc. The vineyard was initially created when the Borie family purchased 18 hectares of vines from Chateau Lagrange in 1970. To that, they added 12 more hectares of vines from various other growers, some of which needed planting.

Things changed with the 2018 vintage when the estate was renamed Le Petit Ducru.

Chateau Lalande Borie Vineyards, Terroir, Grapes, Winemaking

The 25-hectare, Left Bank vineyard is planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has a terroir of gravel and clay soils. The clay in the soil is part of the reason that today, you find more Merlot in the vineyard. Previously the Cabernet Sauvignon occupied 65% of the vineyard makeup.

The vineyard is well placed in the western part of the St. Julien appellation. It is situated inland, not too far from Chateau Lagrange, Chateau Talbot, and Chateau Gruaud Larose. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 8,500 vines per hectare.
