2005 Gruaud Larose

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2005
Appellation: St Julien
91 (NM)
A 2nd growth Saint-Julien château, Gruaud Larose produces some of the Médoc’s finest wines and its worth remains undisputed among the winemakers and critics of today. With over 80 hectares, it is a plot that has remained under vine since the beginning of the château’s existence – and many of the current vines in use stretch back to almost a hundred years. Recent investment has been significant as the estate’s owners look to return the wines to their former glory and the evidence thus far, from the 2015 vintage onwards, suggests it is very much paying off. As such, this château deserves to be held in the highest esteem.

Tasting Notes and Scores

90

Wine Advocate

The 2005 Gruaud Larose has a deep ruby/purple color, excellent concentration, and clean, pure black and red currant fruit, licorice and spice. It is medium to full-bodied, lush, and very soft and round. I’m surprised how drinkable it is already, although it is certainly capable of lasting 15 or more years.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #219, Jun 2015)

Neal Martin

The Château Gruaud Larose 2005 has an open bouquet: quite savoury in style with touches of bacon fat and cured meat infusing the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly angular tannin. The acidity is well judged although it still needs to develop a little cohesion towards the finish. It seems to have just lost a little length since I last tasted it – obviously still going through its awkward “teenager” moment. I am sure it will come down from its bedroom at some point and those sage and thyme notes on the aftertaste continue to appeal..

Michael Schuster

Dark, brick rimmed mature mahogany red; slightly gamey character on the nose, but fresh and refined to smell too; a rich middleweight with a fresh defining acidity, and a fine grained tannin; long, dry, elegant, St Julien; flavoury, vital, finely tannic, on the more solid side, with a good fruit core and excellent aromatic length. Slightly old fashioned in style, but classy and complete, and good value! Still a bit chewy, would be good with food, but essentially needing time to become more harmonious. 2020-35+

Wine Spectator

Aromas of blackberry, meat and earth follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a rich finish. Decadent, balanced and very approachable already. I thought it would have been a little better than this. Best after 2014.
