Smart, dependable Second Growth property Chateau Gruaud Larose used less than half of its crop for the 2006 vintage as so much of its fruit was beyond use. But Jancis Robinson MW OBE is of the impression that Gruaud has a thing about sixes: '86, '96, '06 and now '16 all look like some of the top performers of their vintage in St Julien. Soft and easy-going, it shows some luscious and appealing dark fruit, a little cedar and tar, as well as chocolate. More tertiary elements will show with time. Drink to 2030.
