"Dark, intense colour. The nose is powerful with an explosion of fruit. Good attack, round and soft on the palate with countless flavours. It’s chewy with delicate tannins. It is starting to evolve beautifully in the barrels." —winemaker

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc
"A velvety and flavorful red with dusty tannins and lots of ripe fruit. It remains fresh and balanced. Harmonious. Excited to see it develop in barrel." —JamesSuckling.com

"Red-berry driven, this wine is fresh in character, with a stream of acidity counterbalanced by structured tannins." —Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"The 2015 Gruaud Larose is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, picked from 21 September. It has a rather conservative bouquet, reticent at first, gradually unfolding with truffle-tinged black fruit, the oak nicely integrated but perhaps needing a little more energy. The palate is ripe and rounded on the entry, fleshier than many of its Saint Julien counterparts, quite sumptuous in terms of mouthfeel with a suave texture. There is a sense of linearity here, a strictness that particularly comes through on the finish. The purity is commendable and the tannin, fine, but what it needs is that final flourish. It just misses that killer blow on the finish and saunters to its conclusion. I hope that it gains more in barrel." —Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
