(64% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot): Bright medium red with an amber edge. Archetypal mature Gruaud-Larose aromas of truffle, smoked beef, earth, cedar, and tobacco complicate red cherry on the expressive. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, with a graceful quality to the red cherry, spicecake, orange rind and aromatic herb flavors. The finish is bright, long and clean, showing subtle underbrush notes at the back. I have always felt the 1983 Gruaud to be a success but bottles I've had in the past have been marked by gamey, animal aromas and dry, earthy flavors. Not this time: I've never had a better bottle of Gruaud-Larose from this vintage. -- Ian D'Agata Vinous 93

Solid, intense; roasted coffee and cassis aromas and flavors lead to a lovely ripe fruit finish. Well-built with firm tannins. Drinkable now but better after 1998.--The Bordeaux 50. –JS Wine Spectator 90
