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

(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?

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.

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.

In the bottle, Gruaud-Larose appears to have returned to the form it possessed when I first tasted it from cask - a stylish, surprisingly civilized, medium-bodied wine without the muscle and power expected from both this terroir and vintage. It still possesses excellent density as well as roasted herb, licorice, and black currant flavors intermixed with incense-like smells. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, rich, and forward, especially for the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.

Harmonious and pretty. good color, with plenty of tobacco, berry and mushrooms character, a hint of iodine. Full-bodied, with polished, silky tannins and a long aftertaste of tobacco, cedar and vanilla. Best after 2001.

This tight and powerful red has lots of tannins and fruit concentration. Full-bodied, with lovely violet and berry aromas and flavors. Built for aging. Best after 2002.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
