Description: This Gruaud Larose is a great example of the wonderful terroir of Saint Julien and what this superb Chateau consistently achieves with its wines. It's exactly what you would expect from a top-notch pedigree Bordeaux with classic notes of black cherries, cassis, saddle leather and cedar on the nose. Terrific structure with layers of fruit that glide across the palate and lush, sweet tannins that are beautifully integrated. Having tried this wine a handful of times over the last year, it has opened up remarkably, hit its stride and is in the zone for an 18-year-old Bordeaux. In 2007, Wine Spectator rated this wine 91 points and has not rated it since. We feel it was clearly closed down six years ago and not anywhere near where it is today. Enjoy underpaying for a wine that was previously underscored and overlooked.
