Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 5e Cru Classe 1992

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/119973 for £24.50.Pauillac is an appellation created in 1936,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for red wines from the commune of Pauillac and a few clearly marked parcels outside it. Pauillac is located on thje eastern side of the Medoc peninsular about 25 miles north of the City of Bordeaux and is one of the Bordeaux region's more prestigious appellations with a total of 18 classed growths including 3 first growths in the famous1855 classification of the Medoc.Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste was a 5th growth in that classification.My bottle of wine consists of 75% cabernet sauvignon,20% merlot and 5% cabernet franc and was aged for 18 months in oak barrels [50% new]. I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pheasant.There is some blackcurrant and black cherry style fruit but there are also pronounced flavours of coffee,smoke or cigar box with some well structured tannins.ln short,in spite of its age this is still a quality bottle of wine
