Château Gruaud Larose Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose...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

A superb wine, I love how GL always is so distinctive. If is of course Bordeaux, but always has particular secondary characteristics that set itself apart from most of its bretheren. This was all savory spice and herbs, with perfume like fruit, and plenty of energy from this great vintage. One of the most interesting at #burdigalanyc

This bottle was a generous contribution from @Sean Fernandez in our old and rare department and was a real contender for wine of the night. It is composed of about 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot. The Gruaud was the earthiest, most savory bottle of the whole tasting, and had a little bit of bret that in no way detracted from my appreciation of the wine. It had dark fruit and leather flavors and one of the best supple, medium bodied textures of the whole evening. It was seamless and beautiful wine that drank great now with balance for the ages.

Steak & claret Friday with my dad in town! This bottle was so rich, exotic & enigmatic that Cinnamon & I were both convinced that it had to be from a different era in Bordeaux- we both guessed 1990! Fabulous dark Cabernet fruit and earthy intrigue... Long and complete!

Touch of Brett. Badly stained label. Great shape. Block edge tannins.
