5 Cases of Château Grand Puy Lacoste Ib 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :This property is clearly on the upswing as evidenced by this wine. The open-knit, evolved 2003 is undeniably a sleeper of the vintage and a very good value for a top Pauillac. Deep ruby purple in color with an evolved bouquet of smoked herbs, cedar, creme de cassis, and plums, broad, full-bodied, savory flavors, and beautiful complexity, this wine is rich and long in spite of its forwardness. It will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and drink well for 12-15. A very strong effort.

Blackberry and licorice aromas, with full body, very fine tannins and a long finish. Very silky. So much for jammy wines in 2003. Very fresh and refined. Best after 2008. 15,555 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Grand-Puy-Lacoste 750ml
