The winery is located in the municipality Saint-Julien
or the same area in Médoc
(Bordeaux). The origin is in 1757, when the winegrower Gruaud from Bordelais combined several small plots and called the estate Château Gruaud. His nephew Sébastien Larose added his name. After his death, there was a division into the two wineries Château Gruaud-Larose-Sarget and Château Gruaud-Larose-Faure. In 1917 these became the wine trading house Cordier
acquired, which merged again in 1934. The estate was then sold to the Alcatel Alsthom group in 1993, but Cordier remained responsible for production and sales. Finally the group Bernard Taillan took over in 1997. In the Bordeaux Classification
In 1855 the estate received second place (Deuxième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 83 hectares and are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (57%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (7%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Malbec (2%). The extremely long-lived red wine is aged 16 to 18 months in one-third new barriques. He is counted among the so-called "Super Seconds" because he would actually deserve first place (Premier Cru Classé). The second wine is called "Sarget du Gruaud-Larose".
