Description

Tasted at BBR’s 2005/2009 tasting in London. The Gruaud-Larose 2005 has wonderful purity and lift on the nose with dark baked cherries, crushed strawberry, red cherry, cassis, a touch of leather and black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and good acidity, harmonious with a slightly powdery texture towards the very composed, plum, sage and thyme-tinged finish. Lingers nicely in the mouth. Tasted July 2011. - Neal Martin
