Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Delivers lots of blackberry, mineral and mint on the nose. Full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and racy, polished tannins on the finish. This can go on for many years. But why wait?—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. 21,500 cases made.

James Suckling, Wine Spectator (Mar 2002), March 2002

Serious stuff, this has a sexy feel to it with good weight, length and depth. A really solid core of jammy fruit. Classic and has exceptional grip for the vintage. Gruaud is back in the super-second league.

One of the vintage's most successful offerings...Saturates the palate with glycerine and fruit concentration. Pure, long and impressive.
