Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Pauillac Bottle 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Just like the excellent 2006, the calling card of Grand Puy Lacoste's 2007 is<br/>balance, purity and finesse. It is more supple and approachable than last year,<br/>however, and should certainly be opened before your 2006 or 2005. It has an<br/>attractive blackberry and raspberry nose followed by a stylish palate with<br/>velvety yet linear black cherry fruit and cedar hints. The epitome of top-class<br/>Pauillac, this is another very polished Grand Puy Lacoste from the charming<br/>Francois-Xavier Borie.
