Ch. Gruaud Larose (0.75 L)
NM: The Chateau 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 ¿C obviously still going through its awkward í teenagerí€ 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..
