1979 Château Gruaud Larose

Community Tasting Note


92 Points

Sunday, November 14, 2010 - we drank this wine with a saddle of deer from scotland. It was stored perfectly and it was a DM... which really helps. Very much classic claret, only 12% in alcohol and therefore still having that nice red fruit going on. Even after all those years only the rim was orange brown but the middle was still bright red... all in all a great wine, not better then the 1978 but still a great drink with food. For lovers of classic claret...
