Wine Advocate: 92 Points

The 1989 Gruaud Larose is evolving very slowly and its impressively youthful structure and vibrant flavors auger very well for its future. Offering up aromas of sweet berry fruit cigar wrapper loamy soil and cedar it's medium to full-bodied with a rich core of fruit lively acids and fine but still present tannins. As this develops in the cellar it's showing more plenitude and mid-palate volume than it did a decade ago and for patient readers this is emerging as a comparatively underestimated 1989 Medoc.
