    (Chateau Gruaud-Larose St Julien) This has an attractive, mineral-stony fruit character on the nose. First impressions on the palate indicate this is a touch leaner than some wines of comparable or greater classification, but through the midpalate it shows a good and elegant style, not very dense or rich, but more of a well polished middleweight. There is a firm, tight core of grippy tannins, plenty of pepper and spice, and lots of elegant Gruaud fruit nicely held together with a complex, slightly exotic twist. Nicely balanced. Very good indeed.

    (Château Gruaud Larose) Black violet red color with red meniscus; mint, dill and coffee nose, that changes to a port-like nose after 1 hour in the glass; tasty, coffee, mocha, tart plum palate with creamy texture, good acidity; medium finish 91+ pts.

    (Chateau Gruaud-Larose St Julien) A firm, meaty, classically Gruaud nose with great depth of character. Firm and very tannic structure with a lovely presence on the palate; fine fruit, with a complex, meaty style. The tannins round with a flourish on the finish. This has lovely typicité. Very good indeed, with plenty of potential.

    (Chateau Gruaud-Larose St Julien) An attractive, deep colour when poured in the glass. On the nose it presents slightly hot, stewed fruit, with a slightly pruney character; I find this to be teetering on the brink of an acceptable fruit profile. Quite decent style on the palate, though, amply texture with a good weight, a ripe tannic structure and really rather fine acidity. Nicely balanced, and lovely flavours here. Despite the edgy nose, which hopefully will develop with maturation, I like this. Very good. Needs 8-12 years.
