Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"This larged-scaled wine has a saturated rubt/purple colour and a big créme de cassis nose, with a hint of licorice and tobacco. Still somewhat closed, this deep, full-bodied, luscious, muscular offering exhibits ripe tannin, loads of fruit and tremendous purity. This is a gorgeous example of one of the most popular wines in the Médoc. Its savoury tannin and low aacidity suggets it should be close to its plateau of drinkability in 4-6 years. Antcipated maturity: 2007-2020+. 93+/100 pts (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr-2003)

I haven't opened it yet and was wondering if I should wait a few more years or just open it now. Will it increase in value?

The 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste is even better than such recent vintages as 2005 and 2009. A broad, classic, large-scaled effort, it boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as tell-tale notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, flowers, and unsmoked tobacco. Powerful, full-bodied flavors have shed a lot of tannin, but they remain relatively youthful. This is a young adolescent, broadly flavored Pauillac with an enticing texture as well as abundant richness and fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but promises to hit its peak in five years, and last for two decades.

Very racy. Licorice, berry and lead pencil, with flowers. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very fine indeed... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste 375ml
