Beautiful aromas of currant, black licorice and blueberry follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long, juicy finish. Big wine. Could be better than the classic 2000
As I wrote in my barrel tasting note, the 2009 appears to be the finest Gruaud Larose since their 1990. Some of my concerns about too much brett in previous vintages are long gone as the purity of the 2009 jumps out. Copious notes of sagebrush, cedar, cigar box, licorice, incense, blackberries and lead pencil shavings suggest a big Pauillac rather than a St.-Julien. Broad, rich and full-bodied with good balance and abundant, but sweet, well-integrated tannin, this big, masculine Gruaud Larose reveals remarkable finesse, richness, extract, density and a cascade of fruit that nearly hides the lofty tannins. This beauty should be at its best between 2020-2045. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
I like the aromas of sliced mushroom, berries and wet earth, that follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a chewy finish. A fit, yet polished wine here. Try after 2020. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Gruaud Larose ‘09 has a more extroverted nose compared to its peers with raucous blackberry and cassis fruit; graphite notes and a touch of sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, quite dry tannins. It is more controlled, more “classic” than the nose with a long tail on the persistent finish. This is well crafted Saint Julien, although this showing suggests that it might be going into its shell. Jul 2013, www.robertparker.com
Dense purple red, rich, robust warm autumn fruits, smooth and succulent, a touch of exotic spice, fine balance and length. Drink 2015-30
Dark crimson. Interesting leathery, almost Syrah- like notes. Very neat and satisfying. Savoury. Just a little austere on the finish. Drying tannins on the end. Very sweet.
