International Wine Cellar Author: Ian D'Agata Issue: Issue 10129

(a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 7% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot): Ruby with a pale rim. Rich, ripe nose offers red cherry, plum, spice, mineral and violet aromas. Dense, chewy and fresh, with precise, intense red and black fruit flavors complicated by a hint of licorice. Features a persistent saline note on the rich, long, slightly chunky finish. A very successful Gruaud.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 153

Surprisingly accessible as well as supple, this 2001 St.-Julien reveals a deep plum/purple color along with a rich bouquet of smoke, roasted vegetables, black currants, plums, licorice, and Asian spices. Velvety-textured and medium-bodied, with loads of fruit, and a plump, expansive, plush texture, this is an atypically forward Gruaud Larose to drink now and over the next 12-14 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

This shows a rich and dense nose of blackberry, coffee and smoke. Full-bodied, with soft and round tannins and a long, smoky finish. Very fresh and velvety. GL is really doing excellent things these days, even in less-than-easy vintages. Best after 2008. 2,455 cases made.

Very good, stills years ahead of very fine drinking, just starting to get the complexities of this house fans always looking.

Started out tight and slightly tart, but after 60 minutes in a wide decanter began to open. Nice balance of cassis, iron, plum and earth; quite corpulent on the palate with a long finish. Not as big or ripe as the 2003 or 2005, but very balanced and agreeable. Shows the smooth suppleness of a Margaux with the concentration, preciseness and bouquet of a Pauillac. Drink now through 2016.
