This famous and historic Saint Julien 2nd growth is popular throughout the world and is usually released at the most reasonable price of all the so-called "super-seconds". The 82 hectare vineyard is one of the largest of the classed growths.

Although Gruaud Larose is part of the UGC that sent over samples from its members, they decided not to take part, a decision that I respect. I look forward to tasting their 2019 when I can go to Bordeaux.
The 2019 is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. The abv is 13.65%. The wine will be aged for 18-24 months in 80% new French oak. Samples will not be sent out this year due to concerns over stability of the embryonic wine during international shipment, so there will likely be little critical review ahead of release.
