Sarget de Gruaud Larose 2007

This is the second wine of Gruaud Larose of cru classe fame, so it came with a little expectation.  An aroma of oak and tobacco, was met on the palate by a lighter style of wine, with rather simple fruit and tobacco flavours coming through.  While it did seem true to its St Julien terroir, this is a fairly plain wine; another victim of a mediocre vintage.  81 points.
