Chateau Gruaud Larose 2000
|Brand||Chateau Gruaud Larose|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose, possibly eclipsed by what they have done in 2009, this is a pure, full-bodied Gruaud Larose with plenty of new saddle leather, cedar wood, black currants, cherries, licorice, and Provencal herbs. Spicy, earthy, full-bodied, and rich, it has hit its plateau of full maturity, where it should stay for another 20 or more years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
Absolutely wonderful aromas of flowers, currants and citrus. Full-bodied, yet very, very refined, with a center core of fruit that tastes like crushed raspberries and goes on and on. Greatest wine from this estate since 1945.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
