Tasting Notes

On the nose, this wine has very sweet, bright redcurrant and cassis aromas with exotic spicy notes. Mouth-watering, pure red berry fruit opens up in the glass to reveal a core of intense, dark fruits which are beautifully balanced by a lively, persistent acidity and integrated tannins. Hints of herbs, leather and smoke give complexity on the finish. Over-all, a very appealing, elegant and harmonious wine which should age very well. Drink 2018 ¿2035

Reviews & Scores

2010: This gets my nod as the finest Gruaud Larose since the 2000 and 1990. The opaque purple-colored 2010 exhibits copious notes of Asian plum sauce, spice box, creme de cassis, loamy soil and a beefy/meaty character. It is full-bodied, dense and powerful, with stunning purity and no evidence of brett (a characteristic of the great Gruaud Larose wines made in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s). Given the 2010's tannin profile, it will require 5-8 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades thereafter.
