1982 Gruaud-Larose750 ml - Standard Bottle
|Sub Region||:||St Julien|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||AG95 - Vinous by Antonio Galloni|
|Tasting Note||:||The 1982 Gruaud Larose has long been one of my favourite Saint Julien wines from that vintage. From magnum, the exquisite bouquet of black fruit, leather and hints of game and antique bureau is fully mature yet vigorous and so joyful. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins that have melted in recent years. Here, there is more red than black fruit, suffused with tobacco, sage and cedar notes, impressive in terms of grip and fanning out gloriously towards the finish. Bottles with sound provenance are à point and will continue to give pleasure for another 20, perhaps 30 years. Tasted at the Lafaurie-Peyraguey vertical in Bordeaux.|
