Château Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Stemmy, herbal, and with classic black currant fruit on the nose this showily nicely nuanced and powerful yet with a sense of restraint, showing off late arriving coffee cream toasty oak spice aromas. Classic austere, restrained Bordeaux in the mouth, with excellent balance, this has good depth, though perhaps just a touch soft, there are nice lacy tannins, and while this closes upon the mouth it finishes with great length and subtle nuance. Not a powerhouse but lovely. 92pts

The 2013 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is ready to roll now; the nose is of blackberry, vanilla and smoke (from oak barrels), and the entry is has the slightest pucker and oak flavour, but is smooth and perfect for red meat dishes, with a bit of lead pencil on the palet. Finish is quite long for the vintage. Delicious, but drink now through 2018. 89-90.
