Consumer Reviews - Château Gruaud-Larose 1996


Tom Burnakis  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Jacksonville  (United States)
**** Very good 
Delightful
Deep red. Fruit, musty earth, and violets on the nose. Palate shows blackberry and fine tannins, maybe a little minerality. Needs to be opened an hour or two before drinking, we didn’t but by the end of the bottle a truer character was starting to show. Enjoyed with a smoked trout and greens salad

Experts’ opinions
Robert Parker Robert Parker
"In the bottle, Gruaud Larose appears to have returned to the form it possessed when I first tasted it from cask — a stylish, surprisingly civilized, medium-bodied wine without the muscle and power expected from both this terroir and vintage. It still possesses excellent density, as well as roasted herb, licorice, and black currant flavors intermixed with incense-like smells. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, rich, and forward. Anticipated maturity : 2004-2018."
Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer
"Deep ruby. Explosive aromas of blackcurrant, plum, roasted coffee and saddle leather ; displays a strong torrefaction aspect that suggests late-picked fruit. Thick, sweet and superripe ; quite full and layered in the mouth, with somewhat rustic flavors. Finishes with firm, chewy tannins."
