Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Ch. Grand-Puy-Lacoste is an exceptional wine in 2009. Elegant, concentrated yet<br/>fresh, this has a delicious basket of red and black fruit flavours and<br/>wonderful mineral precision. Sweet ripe tannins and a long, persistent savoury<br/>finish dominate the palate. Absolutely charming, this could be one of the best<br/>buys of the vintage. Sensational. <br/>(Simon Staples, Sales & Marketing Director)

Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines 2005 2000 1990 and 1982) this is a great classic from Xavier Borie s estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of spring flowers crushed rocks black currants cedar and earth/underbrush. Precise and elegant as well as backward and foreboding it should put on weight in the bottle and evolve for two decades. Very concentrated as well as vel

I was surprised that this wine was not more concentrated given the overall character of the vintage, and I would rate it behind the 2005, 2000, 1990, and 1982. Nevertheless, it boasts this estate's classic creme de cassis character as well as a soft,... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

70% of the final blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon 18% merlot and 2% cabernet franc saw new oak. This is a stunner! Dark cherry red color with slight ruby hues this wine does not disappoint. Rich aromas of roasted meats vanilla along with red and black fruits are complemented by pencil lead truffle and sweet oak. The palate is medium to full bodied has ample amounts of tannin and yet has enough restraint to pull this wine together. The finish is long and lingering. This is going to be one of those wines that will be hard to resist. Drink from 2012-2025. Jeff Loo.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Grand Puy Lacoste 09 has a slightly more reticent nose against its peers but no less intriguing with aromas of blackberry pencil shavings a touch of undergrowth and mint. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of spice on the entry. The build is more immediate here a wave of intense black fruits crashing across the palate that tingles with glee long after the wine is ejected. This is a long-term wine that will repay a decade at least in the c
