Tasting Note:

"Tasted at the UGC where it was rather ostentatious with dark chocolate and a slight tinny note on the mid-palate that I rated 90/100. Fortunately I was able to re-taste in London in quieter surroundings mid-April. A fragrant nose that is fleshy and ripe with blackberry, cassis and wild hedgerow. It could do with perhaps a little more precision and clarity. The medium-bodied palate is much more harmonious and focused than the one shown in Bordeaux, supple in texture with rounded black fruits. Tight and linear on the finish with a touch of burnt toast, this will be a very fine Gruaud Larose, but it will need 5 or 6-years to meld together. No Malbec this year by the way. Tasted April 2007."
