91 Points Robert Parker
The delicious 1985 Gruaud-Larose has evolved beautifully. It exhibits a lovely, sweet, fragrant bouquet of berry fruit, truffles and smoky oak. On the palate, the wine is fat, long, forward for Gruaud, medium to full-bodied, and deep. Anticipated maturity: Now-2003. Last tasted, 5/93.
