Description of 1998 Château Gruaud Larose ELA
1998 Château Gruaud Larose ELA
* ELA (Etiquette legerement abîmée): slightly damaged label (tag status)
Gruaud gets its inspiration from the soil, the tannins and the terroir. Larose brings poetry, aromas and bouquet. So could Abbé Gruaud have described his wine, a wine full of Elegance and Force. Château Gruaud Larose is different from other wines. Abbé Gruaud wanted it subtle, racy, comparable to the most beautiful artworks in the world. Year after year, we continue his work. Always timid and reserved when young, a Gruaud Larose slowly reveals its character. Sometimes showing a capricious nature, it decides one day to express its Force and then another day to reveal its Elegance. One says that it "is very Larose" when it is young, elegant and charmer. But this Larose hides a power that only faithful friends can feel. At the first approach, you feel charmed and wish to meet again to better know and discover its personality. Further talks and exchanges and then the wine tells you more about itself, it is like a revelation. Only at this point, you can perfectly perceive that the underlining and structuring force, due to a traditional and rigorous education, becomes elegance and refinement. Then, at its most beautiful age, the wine becomes poetry. Suddenly aromas and bouquet, the strong identity of both soil, tannins and terroir seem eternal like for the 1870 vintage.More about the Winery
Reviews of 1998 Château Gruaud Larose ELA
Cherry blossom colour, nearly opaque. The aromas of coffee and toffee predominate. Very light, pleasant.
It's red with a violet edge. Combination of red fruit aromas and green pepper. Sweet and fruity taste.
I had the pleasure of taking it at a barbecue.
We drank it just like that, without any food pairing.
A red to drink with that special person.
