2012 Château Gruaud Larose, Cru Classé, St. Julien, 12x75cl *
Cabernet Sauvignon 66,5%, Merlot 27%, Petit Verdot 6,5%
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Tenderloin steaks with cranberry-port sauce and gorgonzola cheese, lamb with blue cheese and toasted walnut butter.
Dark, intense colour. The nose is powerful with an explosion of fruit. Good attack, round and soft on the palate with countless flavours. It’s chewy with delicate tannins. It is starting to evolve beautifully in the barrels.
