Expert Reviews

95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - February 2013

Very youthful deep ruby-red color.  Brooding nose offers perfumed blackcurrant, mineral, violet and quinine aromas.  Big, dense and rich, conveying an impression of strong extract to the powerful, well-delineated blackberry and herb flavors.  The long, tactile finish features chewy but polished tannins and a lingering floral note.  Though ready to drink now, this wine will continue to age gracefully.  One of the best Gruaud-Larose wines of the past 40 years.
