Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2001
Similar to Lynch Bages, not only in style but also in far outperforming its<br/>classification, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has made wines in the last five years that<br/>are better than many Second Growths. Located on the Bages plateau the 30 to 60<br/>year old vines to dig deep into the gravely soil and extract the mineral<br/>qualities that seem to be the signature of this chÃ¢teau's wines. Extremely<br/>concentrated, with sweet, black cherries, cassis and flinty overtones on the<br/>nose. The restrained yet powerful palate displays classic Pauillac `grip' with<br/>ripe but firm tannins and attractive herbaceous hints supporting the pure, lush<br/>black fruit.

Very pauillac! Dark, saddle leather and slightly smokey. Opened my first bottle this weekend having bought half a case about 18 months ago. Slightly closed when first opened, but double decanted and left for an hour it was really very good.
This is an unusual note for me, since I shun Bordeaux as of late. It surprised me, and I liked it. Alot. This had a deep ruby color. The nose revealed some tremendous dark fuits, cassis, slight almost inperceptible chocolate, and an eartiness I really enjoyed. (It reminded me of a fantastic Napa offering in a great year similar to a Caymus or Shafer.) I almost forgot it was Bordeaux. Super clean resolved tannins that made this wine super-finessful, and yet big. Great lenght on the backside that went on for 20 seconds.
Medium garnet color. Lead pencil and dried red fruits on the nose. A bit refined on the palate. Not a big wine, but no slouch. Decent mouthfeel with some currant, tar, and leather. There is the usual earthinees present as well. The acid level seems a bit high today telling me it's a food wine. The tannins are undelying. This is my last bottle and I am on the fence either missing more in my cellar or happy they are gone (all 8). I am leaning toward the later.88/100$25.

External Reviews for Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Die Aromatik könnte klassischer und typischer nicht sein: Cassis, Waldboden, animalische Noten und feine Gewürze offenbaren sich in der Nase. Erstklassige Weine aus Bordeaux wie dieser hier halten zu Recht ihre Leaderposition im internationalen Weinkarussell. Vieles spricht für dieses Gewächs: der Charakter, die Harmonie und die Typizität. Das Finale stellt den Höhepunkt einer überzeugenden Präsentation dar und bestätigt den Sinneseindruck im Auftakt: Dieser Wein ist ein Genuss.
A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by this property s tell-tale cassis characteristics. Medium-bodied and monolithic, with fine ripeness as well as depth along with light to moderate tannin in the finish, the 2001 Grand-Puy-Lacoste should be at its peak between 2006-2014.
