Château Gruaud Larose St. Julien Nicked Label Lightly Scuffed Label Lightly Faded Label 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Deep red colour with a hint of garnet at the rim, this has a very mature,<br/>prune-like bouquet, with almost cooked fruit. On the palate it is sweet, ripe<br/>and round with just a hint of rusticity, but the tannins are completely mature<br/>and the acidity is in good balance with the fruit and alcohol. (Alun<br/>Griffiths MW, BBR Wine Director) <br/><br/>

Meaty, smoky, sweet berry and black currant characteristics intertwined with roasted herb, charcoal, new saddle leather, and bloody steak juice-like notes are found in this lush, full-bodied, opulent wine. It is a fully mature 1990 that, given its de... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1990 Gruaud Larose 750ml

Well proportioned, with lovely, ripe fruit and an attractive tobacco and smoke character. Shows good tannin structure and a long finish. Best after 1997. 32,000 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1990 Gruaud Larose 750ml

Medium red. Slightly warm aromas of cherry leather and earth; following the Ducru flight this came across as a bit rustic in character. Very sweet broad and powerful with a roasted marzipan-like quality and fruit of steel. Plenty of structure here. Finishes long and ripely tannic. Drink 2005 through 2020. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93In many cases, the results of my blind tastings confirmed how much I underrated several 1990s. One wine I unquestionably short-changed is the 1990 Gruaud Larose. Over the last few years I had rated the wine 90 points several times, but more often Gruaud fell comfortably in the 88-89 point category. Gruaud-Larose was superb at the most recent tasting. Moreover, this might be a 1990 that is still affordable. The wine exhibits a thick-looking, plum/purple/garnet-like color. A sensational nose of jammy black-cherries, earth, cedar, and herbs has become far more intense and striking. The wine displays sensational richness and power, but not quite the burly, monstrous size and hulking weight of the 1986 or 1982. Yet it reveals impressive stuffing and power. The low acidity emphasizes the thick, juicy, succulent fruit in this backward yet rich, chewy wine. This was the finest showing yet for the 1990 Gruaud Larose. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2020.
