Château Gruaud Larose | Arnaud Frédéric
The abbot Father Gruaud founded Château Gruaud Larose in 1725, which he left to his nephew, Chevalier de Larose in1781, who the estate is now named after.
Gruaud Larose has belonged to the Merlaut family since 1997. They were responsible for introducing sustainable development and organic methods in the vineyard, with great respect for the terroir.
Featuring a single block of vines grown on a rise consisting of deep Garonne gravel from the Quaternary period (about 600,000 years old), Château Gruaud Larose is one of the most historic estates in the Médoc which fully deserves its second growth rank in the Saint-Julien classification.
As befits a wine whose motto is “The King of Wines and the Wine of Kings”, Cabernet Sauvignon is the leading grape variety in this terroir, responsible for the excellent reputation of wines from this estate.
