Château Gruaud Larose St. Julien Lightly Bin-Soiled Label Lightly Scuffed Label Base Neck Fill 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.

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).
