Description :

The Gruaud Larose 1982 is one of the most concentrated wines of the vintage, it is a huge, full-bodied, weighty, rich wine whose tannins are getting silkier and silkier. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life. This behemoth is a singularly profound example of Gruaud Larose that continues to justify its legendary status

Château Gruaud Larose

Château Gruaud Larose Grand Cru Classé Saint-Julien  

The wine remained good and was popular with the nobility at it was La Rose that claimed his wine was "Le Roi des Vins, le Vin des Rois", a declaration that remains on the label to this day.

The Gruaud-Larose estate amounts to 150 hectares of the St Julien appellation, of which 82 hectares are planted to vines; the bulk of the estate lies around Baron Sarget’s chateau, separated from the Gironde by the small village of Beychevelle, and sandwiched between the vineyards of Branaire-Ducru and Lagrange.

The terroir is typical for the region, deep Quaternary gravel, planted with 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. The vines average around 45 years of age, and are planted at a density of 10000 vines/ha.

The grand vin is Chateau Gruaud-Larose, of which there are about 25000 cases produced per annum, and the second wine, introduced in 1979, is Sarget de Gruaud-Larose, of which about 16000 cases are produced. Obviously the exact proportions varies with the quality of the vintage.

Gruaud-Larose has often been described as a super-second, placing it in with the group of Deuxième Cru Classé properties that challenge the elite Premier Cru Classé estates for supremacy in Bordeaux. I must confess that whereas I see the quality in Gruaud-Larose, which has long been produced in a firm, masculine style, more recently with perhaps more finesse, I do not think it the leading challenger just yet; that title falls to Léoville-Las-Cases.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 98 points
"A massive wine that is clearly of first-growth quality in this vintage, the 1982 Gruaud Larose remains a youngster. A broodingly dense, thick, unctuously textured, inky/plum/garnet/purple color offers up scents of beef blood, steak tartare, cassis, herbs, tobacco, and underbrush. One of the most concentrated wines of the vintage (as well as one of the most concentrated Bordeaux’s I have ever tasted), it is a huge, full-bodied, weighty, rich wine whose tannins are getting silkier and silkier. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life. This behemoth is a singularly profound example of Gruaud Larose that continues to justify its legendary status. Anticipated maturity: now-2050." (Jun 2009)

Wine Spectator : 94  points
"One of the best wines ever made at this estate. Dense ruby color with a slight amber edge. Intense grape, berry and raspberry aromas. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, ripe fruit and mineral aftertaste.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal." (Mar 1998)

Stephen Tanzer : 94 points
"Good deep red. Very complex, perfumed aromas of plum, leather, meat and minerals. Sweet, lush and young; really stuffed with fat, meaty fruit. Broad without being really thick, with impressive precision of fruit. The most complex of these three vintages of Gruaud-Larose. Finishes with big, ripe tannins and palate-staining sweet fruit. The young 2000 reminds me of this wine. (A second bottle of equal quality showed roasted currant, tobacco and leather on the nose; a broad, silky palate of compelling sweetness; and a sweetly fruity finish with big, firm tannins and excellent length.) Drink now through 2020." (Jun 2002)
