St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe
u: six 4cm or better, 3 6cm or better, capsule corrosion to three, bin soil and glue striping to all

"The 1961 is among the greatest mature wines of Gruaud-Larose I have drunk. This powerful, rich, densely concentrated wine remains young, fresh, and vigorous, with a full decade of life ahead. It continues to exhibit a dark garnet color with some amber, a wonderfully fragrant quality (plus, minerals, tar, cedar, soy sauce, and licorice), a viscous texture, sensation depth of fruit, and a fabulous, albeit alcoholic finish. This is claret at its most decadent. Anticipated maturity: now-2015." R. Parker, 96 pts. 10/94
9 bottles
Estimate $3,500-4,500
