Deep garnet color, the 1989 Gruaud Larose took 30 minutes to open up. On the nose, it developed discreet aromas of forest floor, notes of tobacco and hints of black fruits. On the palate the wine gradually builds with layers of leather, cedar and spices, the tannins very soft and velvety. It has nice balance, combining power with delicate acidity and a saline element that appears on the mid-palate. It leads to a clean and long finish. This Saint-Julien is drinking perfectly now and should remain in its drinking plateau for another five to 10 years.
