Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) A rich, fruity, smooth wine of breed and character that is very consistent and shows well even in lesser vintages. Should be upgraded to a Médoc Third Growth. A sibling Château of Gruaud-Larose, this very beautiful Domaine is one of the oldest in the Médoc. Once owned by Sir John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, who was the Governor of Aquitaine until he lost the battle in 1453. Bought in 1918 by Georges Cordier and is now the home of the Cordier family. Among the wines classified in 1855, it is one of those which has always kept its good reputation. One of the biggest and most productive Bordeaux vineyards.

    A Grand Cru classe. Enjoyed with Veen in Atlanta at Chops. Spectacular.
