Château Gruaud Larose Saint Julien 2000

SKU 2254


Clear. Garnet red. The nose is a little closed, barely unveiling its aromatic potential. Black fruit, black berries, flowers, spices, wild mushrooms. The tannic structure is still very tight. The wine is more powerful than elegant today. Very long aromatic persistency. Must age.

Wine SpectatorAbsolutely 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. Best after 2010.

Wine AdvocateA 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.

Robert Parker, June 2010
