External Reviews for Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 5e Cru Classe
The nose is driven by minerals clearly some graphite and lead mixing with notes of red berries cherry and tobacco. Smooth and sweet entry with nice balance and just the right amount of tannin on the lingering finish. John Perry.
Unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with plums red and black currants presented in an evolved style characterize this dark plum/garnet-colored effort. Medium-bodied delicious and evolved it is best consumed over the next 10-12 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
(69% cabernet sauvignon 28% merlot and 3% cabernet franc) Medium-deep red. Inviting deep aromas of blackcurrant and ripe plum with a hint of licorice. Very appealing sweet black and red fruit flavors on the palate; shows a stiffer tannic spine than Haut Batailley from the same owner but the tannins are also smoother and riper. Finishes pleasantly long with an obvious cinnamon touch and very good balance. Another wine that may have been more successful in 08 than in either 06 or 07. -Ian D Agata Stephen Tanzers IWC.
