Chateau Gruaud-Larose 2010: The wine of kings, the king of wines... | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

In 1997 Chateau Gruaud-Larose, an 1855 classifed growth with a long history, was repurchased by the Merlaut family. Bearer of a long viticulutural tradition dating to the 18th century, Gruaud- Larose is a Saint-Julien whose particularity is that its 82 hectares of vines are in a single, undivided vineyard. With soils that consist of quaternary gravel on a substratum of tertiary clay it possesses the ideal combination for ensuring that the Cabernet-Sauvignon (majority), Merlot, Cabernet-Franc and Malbec receive correct nutrition and reach full ripeness.

Only once in my life did I ever think I knew everything there was to be known about wine. In 1978, two years after beginning them, I finished the courses run by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. By dint of luck, and presumably a hefty dose of grammar-school diligence, I was the top student of my year and reckoned that with a WSET Diploma under my belt, I was now a fully fledged wine expert.
