Château Gruaud Larose, 2nd Growth St Julien, Bordeaux, France, 2000
Grapes: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, 46 year old average vine age, organic & biodynamic management, 83ha of vineyards on gravel soil, manual harvest & double sorting of the grapes, 16-18 months' ageing in French oak barrels.
One of the greatest wines of the vintage, layer after layer of pure fruit, with a long, long finish.
"A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose, possibly eclipsed by what they have done in 2009, this is a pure, full-bodied Gruaud Larose with plenty of new saddle leather, cedar wood, black currants, cherries, licorice, and Provencal herbs. Spicy, earthy, full-bodied, and rich, it has hit its plateau of full maturity, where it should stay for another 20 or more years."
94/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr., 2010
Also awarded 3 star coup de coeur by Le Guide Hachette des Vins, 2004 and #59 in the Wine Spectator Top 100, 2003
