Luscious and seductive cassis and blackcurrant aromas give way to some dusty cedar and notes of Indian spice; classic Gruaud Larose! There is an upfront sweetness to the palate with a deep core of black fruit that is guided by fine drying tannins. Good acidity, good tannic grip, freshness and lots of breed and elegance, suggesting this will age superbly.
Black-currant fruit and attractive acidity are layered with ripe, dark tannins and concentration. The potential is there, although it is likely be over the short term. Drink from 2018.
