Large Parcel of Chateau Gruaud Larose 1982
All bottles bought as en-primeur and stored in excellent Parisian underground cellar since purchase
Finding mature wines has been a great challenge in the past few years as there is insatiable interest as well as scare supply all around the world. When we were approached a few months ago on this very special parcel, we jumped on the plane first thing to find out more. This family bought many great wines en-primeur and in large quantities. All bottles were taken out of the original wooden cases and laid down in the underground cellar in the Parisian home.
The family loves fine wine and it was agreed that Gruaud Larose will be stored for 25-30 years before consumption. Having tasted the wines a few dozen times in the past few years, the patriarch of the family decided to sell the remainder and reinvest in younger vintages for the next generations. Fortunately, we were selected to buy this amazing parcel. The wine is in outstanding condition but of course there is wear and tear for some of the labels which is natural for a wet damp cellar. We have included Parker’s notes below last tasted in 2009. The rating of 98 points makes it one of the top ten wines of the vintage alongside Latour, Lafleur, Le Pin.

||Gruaud Larose - St. Julien 1982
'A massive wine that is clearly of first-growth quality in this vintage, the 1982 Gruaud Larose remains a youngster. A broodingly dense, thick, unctuously textured, inky/plum/garnet/purple color offers up scents of beef blood, steak tartare, cassis, herbs, tobacco, and underbrush. One of the most concentrated wines of the vintage, it is a huge, full-bodied, weighty, rich wine whose tannins are getting silkier and silkier. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life. This behemoth is a singularly profound example of Gruaud Larose that continues to justify its legendary status. Anticipated maturity: now-2050.' WA 98
