There seems to be no doubt about the quality of the 1986 Gruaud-Larose, which in 20 years should rival the extraordinary 1990, 1982, 1961, 1949, and 1928 made at this vast estate. From the first time I tasted this wine in cask, I have thought it to be among the blockbusters of the vintage. It has a blackpurple color, mammoth structure, a fabulous wealth of fruit, and a finish that seems to last several minutes. This is indeed first-growth quality, but then, when, in the last decade, has a Gruaud-Larose not matched the quality of the first-growths? Given the enormous structure, impressive concentration, and massive tannins, one must wonder when this wine will be ready to drink. That may preclude a number of consumers from actually deciding to buy it. For many readers, this is probably a wine to lay down for their children, rather than for them to realistically consider drinking in their own lifetimes. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030. Last tasted, 797

The wine spends 16-18 months in oak barrels in fresh medium at 35%. . Vintages that have remained outstanding as at Gruaud-Larose, as throughout the Bordeaux region, including 1961, 1982, 1986 or 1989... This important field uniformity rare is located on 80 hectares of contiguous ridges of deep bass. They produce the most massive and most robust of the Saint-Julien, a wine of great class and very long-garde high until 1991 under the direction of Georges Pauli, who exalted his characteristic style in several successive owners. .
