(Barrel tasting) This wine is black. Super aromas of licorice and tar, then violets. Full-bodied, with sleek and racy tannins. Very long finish. Best Gruaud ever?
Typical of most of the Cordier wines in 1987, this is a surprisingly muscular, robust, chunky wine, with plenty of concentrated, weedy, cassis fruit hiding under a veneer of hard tannins. Medium to full-bodied, intense, and powerful, this is another potential wine for parents who have children born in 1987 to consider purchasing. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2005.
Absolutely wonderful aromas of flowers, currants and citrus. Full-bodied, yet very, very refined, with a center core of fruit that tastes like crushed raspberries and goes on and on. Greatest wine from this estate since 1945. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Gruaud Larose 750ml
Harmonious, but lacks a bit of concentration. Pretty, with delicious chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Best after this year.
A dense garnet/ruby/purple color is followed by a wine with a sweet, jammy, black-cherry, Asian spice, soy, and earthy-scented nose. This big, beefy, medium to full-bodied 1995 Gruaud Larose displays excellent ripeness, plenty of muscle and glycerin, and sweet yet noticeable tannin in the heady, intensely spicy finish. this is a mid-weight, substantial wine that needs 6-7 years to shed its tannin; it should keep for two decades.
This is a great Bordeaux showing intense, smoky, mineral-laced blackcurrant fruit on the nose, with real depth of aroma. The palate is rich, tannic and full of concentration of primary fruits. There's great potential here for the cellar.
Good deep red-ruby. Somewhat more evolved aromas of redcurrant, roasted coffee and smoked meat. Silky and lush in the mouth, but with less intensity and charm than the '96. Seems a bit monolithic today. Tannins come across as slightly dry after the '96.
Strong, very well-developed, reddish-brown colour. Elegant and delicate nose, tending towards notes of undergrowth, from truffle to light tobacco, with hints of toast, roasted coffee beans. Pleasantly aggressive in the mouth, plenty of finesse, soft tannins, with flavours of stewed prunes and cherry stones. An all-rounder that displays the elegance of a St. Julien and the generosity of a Gruaud Larose.
