Reviews for 2011 Gruaud Larose Bordeaux Blend

JS 93
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2012
A very harmonious wine for the vintage with currants spices and stones. Full body with ultra fine tannins and a pretty finish. Delicate yet structured for the vintage.

A stony slightly austere style showing iron and steeped red currant fruit with bitter cherry notes running through the finish. There's a slightly rustic edge but also solid concentration.-J.M.

61% cabernet sauvignon 29% merlot 7% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot. Aged in one-third new oak barrels. Dark fruit notes of blackberry and marion berry burst from the glass supported by aromas of dark chocolate... 61% cabernet sauvignon 29% merlot 7% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot. Aged in one-third new oak barrels. Dark fruit notes of blackberry and marion berry burst from the glass supported by aromas of dark chocolate tobacco and a touch of cedar. With a broad and weighty mouthfeel the wine coats the mid-palate while vibrant acidity provides nice balanced lift to the tannic structure. The excellent texture carries through the lingering finish. One of the more full-bodied wines from St. Julien in 2011 this will need 8-10 years to really come into balance and should be beautiful to drink through 2030.
