When last encountered, sweet, still full of fruit and drinking well.

(6-1996) This is another typically tough, muscular, closed, angular, acidic 1970, seemingly without the extract and concentration to balance out the tannin. The 1970 Gruaud-Larose remains dusty and coarse with considerable brett (the spoilage yeast that technocrats find appalling). I am not sure this wine will ever become fully mature. While it offers an attractive leathery, smoky, earthy nose, the flavors remain hard and coarse.

Gruaud Larose

The Chateau Gruaud-Larose is a Bordeaux wine located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle. AOC Saint-Julien, it is ranked second growth in the Grand Cru classification of 1855 

(>> see article "Grands Crus Classés from Bordeaux, Official Classification of 1855").

Château Gruaud-Larose's vineyard is composed of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. The wine stays for 16 to 18 months in oak barrels in new mediums at 35%. Some great vintages have remained exceptional in Gruaud-Larose, as in all of Bordeaux, such as 196119821986 or 1989. This important area with extremely rare homogeneity is implanted on 80 hectares of single piece of deep gravel rumps . It produces the largest and most robust Saint-Julien, a wine of great class and very long guard, raised until 1991 under the direction of Georges Pauli, who has exalted his characteristic style under several successive owners.
