Gruaud Larose 經常都希望給予創造里程的人類無限價值,也為人類的工作及與葡萄園的連繫賦予價值。葡萄樹和葡萄沒有人類,也會變得沒有價值,沒有葡萄田上的釀酒師,也不能讓普通的葡萄釀成有力量的酒。

在酒莊創立以後,四個家族曾擁有過酒莊,於 1940 年 10 月 Saint Julien 村村長 Désiré Cordier把酒莊交予兒子 Jean。同一道理,Jacques Merlaut 信任 Gruaud Larose 如兒子,這種家人的連結,蔓延整個酒莊,工作人員很多時都全家在內工作。


Gruaud Larose has always tried to give value to the role of man in the creation of its elixir; both to his work and to the bond established with the vineyard. The vine stocks and the grapes are nothing without man, without these makers of crus, from the most modest to the most powerful.

Since its creation, four families have succeeded one another at the head of Gruaud Larose: the Gruaud and Larose families, the Balguerie and Sarget families, the Cordier family and the Merlaut family. In this way, in modern history, Désiré Cordier, mayor of the Saint-Julien village, passed the torch to his son, Jean, in October 1940.

In the same way, Jacques Merlaut entrusted Gruaud Larose to his son, Jean. This family attachment has been passed on to the employees who often work at the chateau from father to son and from mother to daughter.

Tasting Notes:
(2000)
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.

(2016)
The 2016 Gruaud Larose is medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with notes of red and black cherries, warm plums and freshly crushed blackcurrants plus hints of violets, oolong tea, aniseed and tilled soil with a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied, the palate struts tons of elegantly fragrant red and black fruit flavors with a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
