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.

Deep ruby; spicy tobacco and cassis nose; elegant aromas; firm, elegant, evolved cassis and cedar flavors; fairly full.

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

This important field uniformity rare is located on 80 hectares of contiguous ridges of deep bass. They produce the most massive and most robust of the Saint-Julien, a wine of great class and very long-garde high until 1991 under the direction of Georges Pauli, who exalted his characteristic style in several successive owners. .
