Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The *greatest* Grand Puy Lacoste since the 2005, 2000 and 1990, the *fabulous* 2010 reveals all the hallmarks of this estate. It boasts a dense purple color along with classic notes of creme de cassis, blueberries, blackberries, crushed rocks and flowers, sweet tannin and an exceptionally full-bodied and multilayered mouthfeel as well as a boatload of tannin. Cellar it for a decade and drink it over the following three decades. Proprietor Xavier Borie’s 2010 recalls the 2005."*-Robert Parker Wine Advocate (93-96 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, the Grand Puy Lacoste '10 has 13.6% alcohol with a total acidity of around 3.5gms/L. It has a very complex bouquet that I leave over 5 minutes to open, developing ripe blackberry, cassis, oyster shell... Neal Martins Wine Journal.

An absolutely magnificent wine from this very popular estate, which sits well off the Route du Vin, just to the southwest of the town of Pauillac, its classic creme de cassis and floral notes are well-displayed. The wine possesses supple tannin, a full body, voluptuous character and a layered, impressively textured mouthfeel. This is a brilliant effort from Grand Puy Lacoste that can be drunk in 4–5 years or cellared for three decades or more.

83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot were blended to produce a deep colored wine that expresses toasty oak cassis coffee jammy dark berries tobacco and olive tapenade aromas that pair well with the full-bodied bite of concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon spice and cassis. Along with the stellar 2005 this is the best vintage of this wine since the outstanding 2000. Jeff Leve.

This is dense but silky around the edges, with crushed plum and black currant fruit lined with roasted vanilla bean, tobacco and loam notes. Everything hangs solidly through the finish, lined with finely beaded acidity and leaving an echo of singed anise. Best from 2015 through 2028.
