Os Homens

Ao longo de gerações passadas, foram surgindo verdadeiros artistas/produtores de vinho.
Sem a boa vontade desses homens, os solos se tornariam meras vinhas.
Eles fizeram e fazem hoje um solo excepcional mundialmente famoso.
O trabalho do homem da vinha é solitário, árduo e responsável.
O trabalho: simples e complicado ao mesmo tempo; a ambição: humilde e grande ; a fadiga: rítmica e interminável.
A tradição do trabalho vem a fortalecer as modernidades das técnicas, e as experiências passadas fortalecem as novas abordagens vitícolas.

O "Terroir"

O conceito de terroir liga os aspectos geológicos e do clima. A extensa concentração de "Grandes vinhos" do Médoc, se beneficia de um microclima particularmente favorável para a videira.
A natureza do solo limita o retorno da água da chuva, e no periodo do verão, muito quente e seco de julho a setembro, que é fundamental para uma boa maturação, e uma transferência satisfatória entre as raizes e as uvas.
No Gruaud Larose, súbitas tempestades de verão são controladas pelo trabalho do homem.
O solo é composto de húmus, argila, areia e cascalhos esquecidos pelo rio. O subsolo é de barro vermelho, amarelo ou azul, em seguida, areia e mais pedras vindas dos Pirinéus.
Os cascalhos impedem a terra de ser uma massa compacta, asfixiante. Toda a idade do gelo está incorporado nestas paisagens minerais .

Uma Historia

Gruaud Larose sempre procurou a valorizar o homem na concepção de seu vinho.
Tanto na ação como na relação que estabelece com seus vinhedos.
A vinha e as uvas não são nada sem os fabricantes de vinhos, o homem.
Desde sua criação, em 1725, quatro famílias tiveram sucesso à frente do Gruaud-Larose: famílias Gruaud & Larose, as famílias Balguerie e Sarget, a família Cordier e a familiar Merlaut.
Este apego familiar também é transmitida entre os funcionarios, que muitas vezes trabalham pai para filho.

CLIMATE

The winter was unusually humid with mild temperatures. Marchand April were very cold causing a much delayed budbreak(15 days later than usual). The cool and humid conditions in May and June resulted in a set back in vegetation. Flowering took place during the second half of June under difficult circumstances leading to flower abortion and berry-shot. Fortunately, July and August were warm, sunny and dry. Thanks to these favourable conditions, the vines stayed in good shape. Beginning of September saw the rain coming back again, which speeded up the harvest.

CLIMATE

Exceptional vintage. Outbreak of the first leaves beginning of March. Temperatures and amount of sunshine well beyond normal. Even so, the vines didn't suffer. Great drought confirmed (-50% pluviometry) and general flowering beginning of June. From August 20th, rainfall (withered or roasted grapes). Certain late growths benefitted from the eastern drying wind that stops the grey mold (Botrytis) to wait for complete maturity of the Merlots. The old vines, in ploughed soils with a solid root system in deep gravely soils held perfectly up against the great drought.

Exceptional vintage. July and August were marked by alternating cool periods and tropical days. March was summer-like. These variations affected the ripening conditions of the grapes considerably. End of season very favourable. Almost all the plots were harvested without rain. The harvest was interrupted from September 19 to 29 to await the full maturity state of the Carbernets and the Petit Verdots: picked under optimal circumstances. In conclusion, this vintage with incontestable natural potential required a rarely equalled sense of observation and respect of the vineyard

CLIMATE

The 1991 vintage was marked by the diversity of situations originating in the loss from the spring frost, but also the distribution of rain during maturation. These conditions did not allow anybody to predict the quality potential that became undeniable at the end of August. The completion of the ripening in fine weather would certainly have led to great quality. The risks of rot forced the winegrowers to accelerate the harvest and organise it according to the rain.

Very precocious maturity, exceptional richness in sugar and great concentration of phenolic compounds. The reason for the 1990 precocity is to be found in the highly favourable climatic conditions, from the beginning of the year till end of October. An exceptionally mild winter, with an extremely hot February=>very precocious bud-burst, spread over a period of time). End of March and most of April cold with episodes of frost (a second generation of clusters saw the light of day). Warm May, sunny and somewhat humid.

Beginning of September, close to 40�, then rain during the 2nd week end. Then, sun and little water (great concentration/perfect sanitary conditions). Rain-free harvest. One of the easiest vintages in the past 30 years.

APPELLATION : AOC SAINT-JULIEN

Second cru classé en 1855

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

Exceptional vintage. Outbreak of the first leaves beginning of March. Temperatures and amount of sunshine well beyond normal. Even so, the vines didn�t suffer. Great drought confirmed (-50% pluviometry) and general flowering beginning of June. From August 20th, rainfall (withered or roasted grapes). Certain late growths benefitted from the eastern drying wind that stops the grey mold (Botrytis) to wait for complete maturity of the Merlots. The old vines, in ploughed soils with a solid root system in deep gravely soils held perfectly up against the great drought.

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

Normal bud bursting end of March. May alternated between periods of rain and sunshine. Flowering end of May/beginning of June in cold and rain. 2nd decade of June was dry and sunny. High precipitation levels and low temperatures early July=>phonological lateness. In August, alternating rain and sun=> difficult veraison. September was favourable and dry (sun and eastern wind)=>good maturation and sanitary conditions.

CLIMATE

Quick and homogenous flowering end of May. After a dry period in May and June, July was rainy. August was warm and moderately rainy. Average temperatures in September. Maximum temperatures of 25°C for 6 days only. Good conditions in summer and beginning of autumn generated good maturation conditions with a very good constitution.

APPELLATION : AOC SAINT-JULIEN

Second cru classé en 1855

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

2000 is among the precocious years. The half-veraison is 9 days early (on August 6th). From April to mid August, the vintage seemed to be moderately hot with a surplus of sunshine and humidity. April was hot and very humid. May and June were hot and moderately rainy. In spite of all this, the flowering was relatively quick and homogenous. July was cool and humid. The first fortnight of August was hot (5 days>30�C) with little rainfall. Quick veraison. A harvest spread over September and beginning of October allowed picking exceptionally healthy grapes.

APPELLATION : AOC SAINT-JULIEN

Second cru classé en 1855

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

Contrasted climate. The 3 first months were marked by above-average temperatures. Bud-bursting end of March. Precocious and abundant vintage. April and May: higher than normal precipitation and temperatures. First fortnight of May was very rainy, but the second was dry: quick and homogenous flowering. June, July and August were hot with much sunshine. From August 10 to September 12, the weather was generally hot and dry. The favourable climate during the last 2 decades of August and the first days of September allowed a good maturation of the grapes. A very good vintage in the Grands Crus.

APPELLATION : AOC SAINT-JULIEN

Second cru classé en 1855

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

May was hot and dry. Quick and homogenous flowering. July was relatively hot and dry. August very hot and very dry. In 1998, there was an excellent richness in the grapes very early and the disturbed climatic conditions in September didn't harm the general condition of the grapes nor their state of health at the time of the harvest.

APPELLATION : AOC SAINT-JULIEN

Second cru classé en 1855

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

Exceptional vintage. July was marked by alternating cool periods and tropical days. March was summer-like. These variations affected the ripening conditions of the grapes considerably. End of season very favourable. Almost all the plots were harvested without rain. The harvest was interrupted from September 19 to 29 to await the full maturity state of the Carbernets and the Petit Verdots: picked under optimal circumstances. In conclusion, this vintage with incontestable natural potential required a rarely equalled sense of observation and respect of the vineyard.

CLIMATE

Hot winter, especially January. Low temperatures in February and in the very beginning of March (late budburst). Negative temperatures early April. May was moderately hot and humid. Very quick flowering end of May. June and July: very hot and humid with storm rainfall. The storms continued in a relatively cool August. September was very cool and humid, abundant rainfall from the 24th. Otherwise, a lot of sunshine (great photosynthesis=>good accumulation of sugar). Temperatures relatively low (limited combustion of the malic acid). Very satisfactory sanitary state overall.

APPELLATION : AOC SAINT-JULIEN

Second cru classé en 1855

AREA UNDER VINES : 82 ha

SOIL : Garonne gravel from the first quaternary, settled more than 600 000 years ago


CLIMATE

June and July were had noticeable high temperatures and no precipitation. Thanks to the good climatic conditions of the summer, the grapes reached a chemical make-up that could be qualified as excellent at the time of the harvest. September was marked by cool and rainy weather. These precipitations were cause for concern before the harvest but, mostly, they were useful to compensate for the excessive dryness; the consequences hereof could have been detrimental.
