Sarget de Gruaud Larose 2000 Saint-Julien


Sarget de Gruaud-Larose is one of the most popular second wines in Bordeaux. Made of the younger vines of the estate, it receives the same care as its big brother. We have managed to get our hands on the rare, wonderful 2000 vintage - this is absolutely perfect for mature wine lovers! It exhibits silky notes of red fruit, a hint of fresh liquorice and a beautiful underwood background. An unusual second wine from a great vintage and absolutely perfect to drink now!

91/100 "This château made a classic grand vin and the second wine is outstanding. Very rich and plummy on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and plenty of fruit on the finish. Serious concentration here."
