2008 Château Gruaud Larose

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Saturday, August 18, 2012 - Will drink this bottle over several days.
Right after opening a dark nose and a palate which is full of very ripe, dark and dense fruit. This is a crowd pleaser.
The wine has a medium to full body and it is not very tannic and it drinks well already now.
No complexity to speak of.
I can not recall ever having had a bordeaux that drinks this well so young and that is so fruity and sweet. This certainly was a big surprise.

Developed nicely over 16 days, but it took 3-4 days for the oak to disappear.
