Château Gruaud Larose

Château Gruaud-Larose is a prized 2ème Cru Classé estate, which produces some of St-Julien's most full-bodied and supremely long-lived wines. It’s prestigious classification dates from 1855.

The estate’s history dates back to 1725, when the property was called Fond-Bedeau. Two Gruauds administered it; one a priest and the other a magistrate called the Chevalier du Gruaud. The property was subsequently passed to Joseph Sebastian de La Rose, who renamed this property Gruaud-Larose honoring its history. 

For many years Gruaud-Larose was owned by the négociants Cordier, owners of the prestigious Château Talbot. It was sold in 1993 to the Alcatel Alsthom, which in turn sold it to the Taillan Group, owners of Chasse-Spleen and Haut-Bages. The acclaimed winemaker Georges Pauli has remained a constant presence. 

Gruaud-Larose boasts 84 hectares of vineyards, planted meticulously to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The sublime terroir of Château Gruaud-Larose is located on a gravel-rich plateau just to the west of Château Beychevelle.

The Château produces a sublime second wine, Sarget du Château Gruaud-Larose, Larose de Gruaud or La Roseraie de Gruaud Larose.

Jean Merlaut is also the owner of  Abatilles natural mineral water.
