A classic vintage for Gruaud-Larose, the 1966 remains surprisingly young, relatively unevolved, but austere, with a black currant, cedary, earthy fruitiness, and firm tannins. The finish is dry, but long and still youthful. In style and texture, the 1966 Gruaud-Larose resembles a big Pauillac. Will the 1966 Gruaud-Larose ever shed its tannic toughness?

Cedary, tarry nose, with hints of cassis. Firm yet beginning to round off. Elegant cassis emerges, and the wine begins to open, showing nuances of fruit, but it's not yet ready to drink.

Although drinking well in the late 1970s, noted several times as unready during the early part of the next decade. Also various bottles "fully evolved", "full of fruit and extract", "crisp", "still tannic" --a bit of a hotch potch of notes. A fragrant, rich, cedary double magnum at the chateau in April 1994, notably full-bodied and laden with fruit, extract and tannin. Two months later a most attractive bottle, stylish, mature, drinking well.
