Special notes

Château Gruaud-Larose is one of the famous vineyards in Bordeaux. Since the 1855 classification, it ranks as the Second Grand Cru. In 1757, Father Gruaud acquired the three small contiguous parcels on the plateau of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle and combined to form the Château Gruaud. His nephew Sebastien Larose renamed the estate Château Gruaud-Larose. At his death, the estate was divided in twoto form Gruaud-Larose-Sarget and Gruaud-Larose-Faure.
