1999 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

SKU #1010211 90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Delivers lots of blackberry, mineral and mint on the nose. Full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and racy, polished tannins on the finish. This can go on for many years. But why wait? (Web Only-2010) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Rather luscious nose and thick and dense. Lots of fruit. Still quite dry finish. Muscular. Trying to punch at top vintage weight. Medium body - a real success and very good value. (JR) 17/20 points Inner quote mark (9/2009)

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An exotic perfume of tapenade, new saddle leather, damp earth, black currants, cherries, and smoke jumps from the glass of this impressive, powerful 1999. The wine is medium-bodied with moderate tannin. This dark plum/ruby-colored St.-Julien requires another 2-3 years of cellaring. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2002)

Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full medium ruby. Highly aromatic, expressive nose combines currant, espresso, saddle leather and roasted meat. Sweet, lush and smooth, but given definition by its vinosity. Not especially refined, but plummy and mouthfilling. Ripe tannins saturate the teeth and the sides of the mouth on the long finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2002)
