The second wine of one of the best performing Second Growths shares many of the characteristics of its Grand Vin but offers superb value. Ch. Gruaud Larose is traditionally a good keeper; the Sarget, whose name comes from a previous shareholder, needs some time but not as long.

91 points Wine Spectator

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. (JS, Web Only-2003) (3/2003)

Deep dark brick colour, enticing aromas of Tabaco, leather and concentrated cassis, leading to a medium bodied, bold, yet supple palate of dried dark fruit, pencil box and forest floor, suffused with supple leather that heralds the well integrated tannins of this exceptional vintage.
