Sarget de Gruaud-Larose is one of the most popular second wines in Bordeaux. Made of the younger vines of the domain, it receives the same care as its big brother. Less tannic and less oaked, it exhibits silky notes of red fruit with a hint of fresh liquorice. It is just perfect for amateurs looking for a more affordable classified Bordeaux which is more ready to drink. A beautiful second wine.
