Château Gruaud-Larose, 2ème Cru Classé, St. Julien 2000
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Bordeaux Left Bank
Grape Variety: Bordaeux Blend Red
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.Tasted June 2010. 94 Points Robert M. Parker, Jr, The Wine Advocate.
