At the last tasting, gentle, yet full of fruit and drank well.

This is another typically hard, muscular, closed, angular, acid 1970, apparently without the extract and concentration to balance the tannins. Gruaud Larose 1970-The remains dusty and rough with Brett considerable (the spoilage yeast that technocrats find appalling). I'm not sure that this wine will never become fully mature. Although an attractive leathery, smoky nose earthy flavors are hard and coarse.

Deep ruby, spicy aromas of tobacco and cassis nose, elegant, strong, evolved blackcurrant and cedar flavors, fairly complete.

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.
