Gruaud Larose 2015

Scores are consistently high for Gruaud Larose 2015.

WE95 writes, 'The ripe fruit that is a hallmark of this vintage at th

is estate has been maintained along with solid tannins and richness. This has both tannins and concentration, although the fruit is the main thing, making a wine that will develop relatively quickly. Edited. A similar view is expressed by JS95, who says, 'Concentrated and elegant with a great harmony of dry tannins and ripeness (but no hint of overripeness), this has a long finish with a lot of drive and enormous freshness. You could drink this now with red meat, but it has decades ahead. Also, TA95, who continues, 'Gone are the bad old days of farmyard aromas and flavours, to be replaced by something that is classic, yet modern at the same time. Polished and well-defined, this carries its 100% new oak with ease, such is the structure and depth of the wine. Drink: 2022-32. Edited.

Also, a whopping 97+ from Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, who writes, 'Gruaud Larose 2015 is medium to deep garnet in colour. It leaps out of the glass with notes of crushed black cherries, blackcurrant pastilles, juicy blackberries, and suggestions of violets, camphor, and black truffles. The medium-bodied palate is fantastically elegant and intense, with fine-grained tannins and bold freshness to support it, finishing long and perfumed. Impressive. Edited.
