Château Gruaud Larose, Saint-Julien 1997

Imported by Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

Twenty years on.

Ruby core, garnet to the rim.  By comparison to the dragon profile of ’89 the ’97 is quieter yet active.  Duck jus and black currant and the finish rises and curls around a faithful mirror of this gravel and limestone marl terroir.  Now.
