    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Reviewer, Robert Parker - The Hedonist's Gazette - Perhaps the greatest Gruaud Larose every made (although I dont want to insult anyone who owns the 1961), the 1982 continues to go from strength to strength. Dark plum/garnet to the rim, it boasts an extraordinary nose of underbrush, blackberries, cedar, truffles, incense, and licorice. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, but impeccably balanced, with decanting, it becomes civilized as well as complex and sumptuous. This wine seems to be moving to a plateau of early maturity, where it should remain for 30 or more years. Fabulous! August 2007 Robert Parker.

    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Displaying an awesome richness and mammoth constitution to go along with enough tannin and body to suggest that one will probably have to wait at least another 10-15 years for this wine to reach maturity. It is one of the darkest and most opaque-colored 1982's, and has a huge, spicy, black currant, grilled-meat aroma. Anticipated maturity: Now-2020.
