Description

While the 2008 is not a blockbuster, it is a strong effort for the vintage. This dark plum/purple-hued wine reveals some background oak, licorice, earth, plum, black currant and cherry notes intertwined with a foresty/mossy component. Deep, polished and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, it builds incrementally on the palate. This impressive 2008 will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for two decades.

Tasting note

2008年的拉路斯/金玫瑰展現了聖朱利安葡萄酒的經典優雅與豐富層次。酒體呈現中等至深的紅寶石色澤,散發出新鮮黑加侖子和深色水果的香氣,伴隨著烤橡木的細緻香味。口感上,新鮮的酸度、結構化的單寧和適中的餘韻完美平衡,展現出精心釀造的聖朱利安特色,帶來愉悅而不過分張揚的品飲體驗。建議在享用前約兩小時醒酒,以充分釋放其風味。這款葡萄酒與烤羊肉、紅酒燉牛肉、奶油蘑菇燴飯或一系列陳年乳酪等豐盛菜餚搭配得天衣無縫。

The 2008 Chateau Gruaud-Larose is a testament to the classic elegance and savory depth that Saint-Julien wines can offer. With a medium to deep ruby-red hue, this wine exudes fresh cassis and dark fruit aromas, complemented by toasty oak notes. On the palate, it presents a harmonious balance of fresh acidity, structured tannins, and a fair length finish. The wine's well-crafted composition and straight down the line Saint-Julien character make it a delightful experience, offering a good but not overwhelming thrill. Decanting for approximately two hours before serving is recommended to allow the wine to express its full array of flavors. It pairs exceptionally well with hearty dishes such as roast lamb, beef bourguignon, a creamy mushroom risotto, or a selection of aged cheeses.
