Now under new ownership, Gruaud-Larose appears to have emerged from the mini-slump or stylistic indecisiveness of the late eighties. It has returned to the blockbuster, super-extracted, savagely intense, full-bodied, tannic winemaking style that characterized this property's performances for most of this century. What is impressive about Gruaud-Larose's 1994 is its superb richness and wild blackberry, cassis character that resembles a blockbuster Syrah from the Hermitage hillsides. Certainly the samples I tasted were massive, full-bodied wines that will no doubt become more civilized with cellaring.
