K&L Notes

From barrel: Toasty oak aromas and flavors. Some tobacco. Good mouthfeel and texture. A bit tannic at the back. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Buyer) 91 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The Château Gruaud Larose 2005 has an open bouquet: quite savoury in style with touches of bacon fat and cured meat infusing the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly angular tannin. The acidity is well judged although it still needs to develop a little cohesion towards the finish. It seems to have just lost a little length since I last tasted it – obviously still going through its awkward “teenager” moment. I am sure it will come down from its bedroom at some point and those sage and thyme notes on the aftertaste continue to appeal."
