Chateau Gruaud Larose 2001

Chateau Gruaud Larose 2001

RM 755

There is a subtlety to this that strikes you immediately – gentle smoke, cold ash, tobacco, white truffle, brambled blackberry fruits, mint leaf, totally sublime, my favourite of the line up so far. It plays to the strengths of St Julien, and plays with nuanced light-and-shade in a way that the 2000 does not at this point. This is a high score for Gruaud Larose, and reflects the heights that this vintage is reaching right now – tracking how long it stays at this level is part of the beauty of wine. I tasted two versions, one decanted and one not – the smokey side is more evident in the carafe, but I preferred allowing it to open more slowly in the glass.  ~ Jane Anson, Decanter (11/2021)

The 2001 vintage from 2ème Grand Cru Classé Saint-Julien estate, Château Gruaud Larose, is a medium-bodied, silky and elegant wine now approaching peak maturity. A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1.5% Malbec, it offers up charming notes of soft red fruits, prunes, cocoa, cedar, spices and pencil shavings.
