Sarget de Gruaud Larose Saint Julien 2009
|Brand||Sarget de Gruaud Larose|
Bottle ShopThis terrific value from Saint Julien shows off the ripe fruit of the 2009 vintage with notes of black cherry, plum, licorice and mocha. Medium-full-bodied, this will pair well with roasted chicken, pork tenderloin and juicy burgers topped with hearty cheddar cheese.
Wine SpectatorThis has a nice beefy edge, offering roasted fig, plum and warm tobacco leaf notes, with bittersweet cocoa inlaid on the slightly gutsy finish. On the rustic side, but solid and winey. This second wine is also released under the Larose de Gruaud label. Best from 2013 through 2020.
