Château Gruaud Larose

Château Gruaud Larose (2. Cru) ligger inde i landet, væk fra Gironde-floden, i den del af Saint Julien, hvor de bedste vine fremstilles.

Slottet har produceret vin siden 1725, og i dag dækker det dyrkede areal 82 ha med et gennemsnitligt årligt udbytte på ca. 150.000 flasker af 1. vinen Château Gruaud Larose 2. Cru og ca. 250.000 flasker af 2. vinen Sarget de Gruaud Larose.

82 ha vinmarker er beplantet med 61 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 29 % Merlot, 7 % Cabernet Franc og 3 % Petit Verdot.

Fire familier har, alle med stor succes, stået i spidsen for Château Gruaud Larose gennem slottets historie: Gruaud- og Larose-familierne, Balguerie- og Sarget-familierne, Cordier-familien og Merlaut-familien. Denne familietilknytning er blevet videreført til de ansatte, hvor arbejdet på slottet ofte går i arv fra far til søn, og fra mor til datter.


Château Gruaud Larose has always tried to give value to the role of man in the creation of its elixir; both to his work and to the bond established with the vineyard. The vine stocks and the grapes are nothing without a man, without these makers of crus, from the most modest to the most powerful. 
Since its creation, in 1725, four families have succeeded one another at the head of Château Gruaud Larose: The Gruaud and Larose families, the Balguerie and Sarget families, the Cordier family and the Merlaut family. This family attachment has been passed on to the employees who often work at the château from father to son, and from mother to daughter. Owner Jean Merlaut.
