Château Gruaud Larose Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 1959

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The color on this was unreal, just perfectly aged and looking decades younger. When the bottle finally made it to the table I figured out why when i noticed the "THE CELLAR" auction label on the back. The nose was enthralling with good intensity of moist earth and dried herbs accentuating the slightly roasted dark berry fruit. At first the wine was a touch astringent just quickly integrated revealing great fruit with a tobaccoedge and a leather finish, gains a cedary quality with time that leads to a strong bit of cigar box all the while retaining distinct yet delicate fruit. Finishes quite long, a real treat.
