Larose de Gruaud St Julien 2008

Product code: 6LARO1B2008

Luscious and seductive cassis and blackcurrant aromas give way to some dusty cedar and notes of Indian spice, classic Gruaud Larose. There is an upfront sweetness to the palate with a deep core of black fruit that is guided by fine drying tannins. Good acidity, tannic grip and freshness. Lots of elegance. This will age superbly.
