2012 Bordeaux – Gruaud Larose and Sarget de Gruaud

by Charles Lea

2012 Bordeaux – Gruaud Larose and Sarget de Gruaud – and a reminder about La Conseillante

The only significant releases this afternoon are Gruaud Larose and its second wine Sarget de Gruaud. Sarget is well-priced compared to some of the Saint Julien second wines, but on the other hand I think I’d still rather have the slightly juicier Connétable Talbot. Much the same can be said of the Gruaud Larose itself – there are other Saint Juliens which are better than this for less.

 

The buy of the day remains the Pomerol La Conseillante:-La Conseillante
