    (Chateau Gruaud-Larose St Julien) This, the oldest wine in the tasting, does not have the most elderly appearance. It is obviously mature, but has good density. It has a slightly exotic, mature, spicy nose, which offers some gamey, meaty aromas. On entry it seems somewhat hollow at first, but it opens out on the midpalate to reveal elegant, mature, gamey fruit. It has a lovely fluidity and balance, with correct acidity. Surprisingly it still has a goodly amount of tannin, and I think the wine will be dead before these ever fully integrate. Nevertheless a good, mature wine, although for drinking soon I feel, preferably with food.
