Château Gruaud-Larose: Vineyards

The Château Gruaud-Larose estate amounts to 150 hectares of the St Julien appellation, of which 82 hectares are planted to vines; the bulk of the vineyard lies around the château, separated from the Gironde by the small village of Beychevelle. To the west there lies a long border with Château Lagrange, while along the northern section the vineyard runs alongside parcels in the possession of Château Branaire-Ducru and Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, both châteaux located close to the Gironde but which have many parcels scattered further inland.

As noted to the east lies Beychevelle, the town, as well as parcels belonging to Château Branaire-Ducru, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou and Château Saint-Pierre. Along the southern border there runs a strip of wooded marshland, within which lies the Chenal du Milieu and the parallel drainage channels known as the Jalle du Nord and Jalle du Sud. On the far side the vineyards have the Haut-Médoc appellation, the estate’s neighbour in this direction being Château Lanessan.
