Château Gruaud-Larose is a winery in the Saint-Julien appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. It is also the name of the red wine produced by this property. The wine produced here was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.HistoryThe property has a younger history than most of its cohorts. Its origins date to 1725 and the knight Joseph Stanislas Gruaud. The property was called Fond-Bedeau, and was administered by two Gruauds; one a priest and the other a magistrate. The magistrate, the Chevalier du Gruaud, died in 1778 and his part of the property was deeded to Joseph Sebastian de La Rose, who renamed this property Gruaud-La Rose or Gruaud-Larose. This piece was classified as a Second Growth in 1855.Control of the property was split among multiple descendants, but the property remained intact until 1867 when it was split into Château Gruaud-Larose-Sarget (after the Baron Sarget) and Château Gruaud-Larose-Faure (after Adrien Faure, who married one Sophie Bethmann, heiress to a portion of the estate).The two châteaux were reunited by the Cordier family, who purchased the Sarget piece in 1917 and the Faure piece in 1935; the château became a centerpiece of the many Cordier properties along with Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey and Château Talbot.In 1983 it was purchased by the Compagnie de Suez, and in 1993 by Alcatel-Alsthom, and in 1997 by the Taillan Group, headed by Jacques Merlaut, which owns a number of other properties, most notably Château Haut-Bages-Liberal.

  • Detour must to visit this magnificent Castle! The view from the top of the belvedere on the whole of the vineyard and the superb gardens is unique, the guides are smiling and welcoming, the visit of the chests and the wonderful barrel cellar is superb and ends with a great tasting with a view on the Castle and vines. Not to be missed!

  • Our guide sommelier Cristina Sigrist has led us to this Winery with an amazing structure. We were greeted by More that told us the history of the site as well as introduced us the entire structure. The impressive is the tower where one has an overview of the vineyards and the entire surroundings. It comes from a winery that is always investing in processes for the cultivation and vinification of grapes. After a beautiful award-winning vintages tasting.
