Tasting Notes: Gruaud Larose's wines are now less tannic, less rough than in the past, combining finesse and balance. Cut for a long, even very long care in the great vintages, they however require a good ten years of aging before softening. The colour is almost black, the wine releases powerful aromas of red fruits. In the mouth, it turns out to be fat, full and rich.
"Full-bodied, layered and juicy young wine. Very tannic yet ripe and intense. Powerful finish. This will be excellent. Better than the 2015." 04/17 JS 95-96 points
