Deep dark colour going to black. The nose has a rich bass note of black fruit, and the palate is broad and weighty, black fruit of great intensity. Morello cherries on the finish, fine and intense. L&S (Mar 2005)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Cassis tends to rule all feeling ripe enriching the nose. The palate has lots of fresh flavours giving a lighter character and this freshness combined with the tannic structure tends to hold back the fruit at the moment. There is much more weight and richness on the back palate. 2012-26 Rating: 91 Derek Smedley MW, (Dec 2013)

A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose, possibly eclipsed by what they have done in 2009, this is a pure, full-bodied Gruaud Larose with plenty of new saddle leather, cedar wood, black currants, cherries, liquorice, and Provencal herbs. Spicy, earthy, full-bodied, and rich, it has hit its plateau of full maturity, where it should stay for another 20 or more years. 2010-2030. Rating: 94 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, (Sep 2011)

The dragster of the classed growths in 2000, this has massive, thrashing, untamed and beastly depths. Rating: 92 Andrew Jefford (Mar 2005)
