Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The brilliant 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste exhibits classic Pauillac aromas and flavors of creme de cassis along with stony/floral notes. Proprietor Xavier Borie has created a wine that should rival the brilliant 1982, 1990, 1996, and 2000. Full-bodied with sweet tannin and superb length (a 40+ second finish), the purity of this beautys black currant fruit is something to behold. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.

Bananas, mango, coffee, so carribean flavors are strong, but it opened up nicely after double decanting...finishes with raisins.

This wine was given to me as a gift for christmas (that I got to pick). The notes in the store said that blackberry and cassis were used in the creation of this wine, and since I really enjoy those I thought that was the bottle for me. When I first opened it the berries were really overpowering, but after a few minutes of opening up it was absolutely fantastic. I'd have to say it was one of the better wines that I have ever had due to its even and smooth taste. If I ever had the chance again I would definitely buy it store and try to resist drinking it!

Rich and cedary with concentrated and tannic fruit thatrsquo;s tight and closed. Hints of currant and black cherry complement the ripe Cabernet fruit. Tannic on the finish.

This wine has put on considerable weight and intensity since I tasted it last spring. It exhibits an opaque black/purple color, followed by an explosive nose of cassis fruit, licorice, and new oak. Full-bodied and dense, with superb richness and huge levels of extract and glycerin, this appears to be a great Grand-Puy-Lacoste that may rival the profound 1990 and 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2002ndash;2025.

A seamless, pretty rsquo;96 claret. Extremely fruity aromas of plums and blackberries. Medium-bodied, with polished tannins and silky texture. Best after 2001.

Vast and powerful, this is black, its flavor detail buried under reductive character. The tannins are forthright and unyielding; no amount of air seems to relieve their compaction. It needs cellar time and a porthouse steak.
