2006 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

SKU #1159066 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. This is an impressive showing for Gruaud-Larose under blind conditions. It has a reserved, cedar, leafy nose with good definition and poise with good lift – very Pauillac in style with the Cabernet driving it along. The palate is full-bodied, very well balanced with good acidity. Firm tannins, ripe and elegant, very well poised on the briary finish. Charming. Tasted January 2010. (Neil Martin's Wine Journal) Inner quote mark (9/2010)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Initially dominated by tannins, this wine is now evolving to show a softer, easier side. With sweet fruit and a delicious, refreshing juicy black currant acidity, the tannins are now the base of an approachable wine, offering considerable pleasure. Inner quote mark (3/2009)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows plum and raspberry aromas, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and pretty fruit on the middle palate. All there in balance and finesse. Best after 2013. Inner quote mark (1/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very dark and brooding. Fresh and fragrant. Quite light but very smooth and delicate and suave and dancing. Lovely already! Very St-Julien. A bit tart on the finish but overall a very good 2006. Inner quote mark (1/2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Musky, gamey aromas of plum, dark chocolate, cocoa powder and roasted oak. Fat, plummy and lush, but with decent spine to give the wine shape. Sweet but not overly so, offering more breadth than depth. Finishes with dusty, horizontal tannins. Inner quote mark (5/2009)
