Château Gruaud Larose Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 1981

Member Review by Amanda Schuster:

Was absolutely amazed that this no-spring-chicken of a Bordeaux still tasted so youthful! Like the Rolling Stones of wine, it still puts on quite a show. The fruit is still very prominent, with some mossy earth. Interesting spices like ginger and cardamom too. A lot going on and stayed alive in the glass for quite some time. A pleasant surprise, but definitely drink it now if you have it.

When the Chateau came on the market in 1982, the great names of the Medoc region fought to buy it. The owners of Chasse Spleen were to become the proud owners.

I found this 30-year old wine to be surprisingly good, much better than expected, even for a wine that has been kept in a temperature-controlled environment. The earthy tones prevailed, but there was still enough fruit to make it compelling and delicious. Went very well with the food (osso buco).
