Château Gruaud Larose Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

Fully mature, the dark garnet-colored 1985 exhibits notes of tapenade, earth, sweet berry and black currant fruit, and possibly a hint of black truffles. The wine is lush, medium to full-bodied, and fleshy, with no hard edges. Sweet fruit, plenty of glycerin, and a very seductive style make for a very sumptuous, complex, fully mature Gruaud-Larose...

Needed to open up a bit, but quite tasty. Lots of life and power.

Quite an elegant nose dominated by an almost sweet cigar box type thing, smoky black fruit with dried floral notes along with mushroom, black olive & warm gravel. Palate is silly with some sweet red fruit coming to the fore and some contours on the finish.

Typical Gruaud, a little Bretty but not in a bag way. Leather, charcoal, Rose petal.
