Chateau Gruaud Larose is an interesting producer in the Saint Julien appellation. 1982 Gruaud Larose is one of the great wines from the legendary vintage! The decade of the 1980’s was good for Gruaud Larose, but after that decade, it took more than another decade before they produced another great wine, which took place in 2000.
Most of the work in the vineyards is done with organic farming techniques. Gruaud Larose began farming 100% of their vineyards using only biodynamic farming techniques starting with the 2019 vintage.
The vineyard is exactly the same today as it was when it was classified as a Second Growth in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc. The vineyards of Gruaud Larose have the highest point of elevation on the Saint Julien plateau.
