Description

This estate continues to under perform, particularly in view of what the previous owners accomplished. Nothing made today resembles the great vintages of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, or even the top-flight 2000. Nearly every St.-Julien chateau is making better wine, and Gruaud Larose needs a wake-up call. A stricter selection might be a place to start. The dark ruby/garnet-colored 2004 reveals an herbal nose displaying hints of dirty saddle leather intermixed with roasted herbs, spice, black cherries, currants, and a green pepper-like character. It is a lightweight effort with medium body, superficial depth, crisp acidity, and sharp tannins in the finish. While it will keep for 10-15 years, and may become slightly more complex, it remains a major disappointment.

Tasting note

這款2004年的聖朱利安佳釀,擁有深邃的暗紅寶石色澤,透露出其經典與鮮明的風格。香氣中帶有細膩的黑果香氣,伴隨著奶油與雪松的微妙層次。口感上,新鮮的黑果味道清晰可辨,單寧結構緊湊,為中段口感提供了堅實的框架。酒精含量平衡,結構完整,使得酒體回味悠長。這是一款不折不扣的經典風格佳釀,建議稍加陳放,以待其風味逐漸展開。

This 2004 vintage from the esteemed Saint-Julien appellation presents a deep, dark ruby-red hue, hinting at its savory and classic character. The nose is greeted with subtle dark fruit aromas intertwined with milky notes and a cedar backdrop. On the palate, the wine offers a fresh black-fruit profile, though the flavors are nuanced, with tannins that assertively frame the mid-palate. The balanced alcohol content and structured composition contribute to the wine's commendable length. A wine that is unmistakably classic in style, it is recommended to allow it some time to unfurl its complexities.
