Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 92

The 1989 Gruaud Larose is evolving very slowly, and its impressively youthful structure and vibrant flavors auger very well for its future. Offering up aromas of sweet berry fruit, cigar wrapper, loamy soil and cedar, it’s medium to full-bodied, with a rich core of fruit, lively acids and fine but still present tannins. As this develops in the cellar, it’s showing more plenitude and mid-palate volume than it did a decade ago, and for patient readers this is emerging as a comparatively underestimated 1989 Medoc. [William Kelley, 06/11/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2045

Vinous – 89

Good medium red with a pale amber rim. Spice and floral notes lift delicate red cherry and redcurrant aromas. Bright and juicy on entry, then sweeter and richer in the middle, with chunky red berry and cherry flavors complicated by spices, underbrush and lemon zest. Lively acidity and a saline touch extend the gentle flavors on the moderately tannic finish, but this wine ultimately comes across as a bit lean. I wonder if the grapes weren’t harvested too early. This lighter-style Gruaud is drinking well now, and there appears to be little to be gained by holding onto it much longer. [Ian D’Agata, 04/01/2013]
