94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Dark ruby-red.  Intense aromas of red cherry, cassis, aromatic herbs and cedar.  Rich, dense and suave, with concentrated flavors of dark berries, cedar and quinine complicated by smoky and peppery nuances.  Finishes very long and smooth, with a highly tactile quality to the cedar and cassis flavors. This Gruaud stands out for its purity, as it seems free of the earthy and gamey nuances that have been present in many past vintages.  In fact, this impressive wine strikes me as the best young Gruaud-Larose in recent memory.  (ID)
