Editorial Reviews for Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
A beauttiful Bordeaux with classic earthy, cassis, pencil lead and cigar smoke notes on the nose then a palate of superb balance. The rich, dried chile, cassis and smoky soil tinged palate was refined and restrained with power yet streamlined weight. The finish was long and warm with a bit of dried fruit, raisined sweetness. A grand wine 93pts.
Lovely Bordeaux on the drier side.
Robert Parker 92 Points Grand-Puy-Lacoste has produced another classic wine with the creme de cassis fruit that I often find in both Mouton Rothschild and Pontet-Canet, yet both of those vineyards are closer to the Gironde River. This wine has a pure personality, with the aforementioned classic creme de cassis notes, medium to full body, beautiful density, purity, texture, and length. If anything, this recalls a hypothetical blend of their brilliant 1995 and 1996. Tannins are elevated, so patience will be required. This was Xavier Borie’s first vintage in his new state-of-the-art winemaking facility. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027. Wine Spectator 91 Points Displays blueberry on the nose, with a hint of fresh tobacco and some licorice. Full-bodied, with chocolate, berry and toasty oak. Long and very silky. Very pretty and balanced. Best after 2013. 13,750 cases made.–JS International Wine Cellar 91 Points Good dark red. Perfumed, ineffable aromas of currant, cherry skin, floral oils and incense. Then juicy and penetrating on the palate, with excellent concentration and thrust to the soil-inflected flavors of currant, minerals and iron. Very suave, pure wine with the structure to age.
Very dark color. This wine has an intense nose of smoke and briar. It is extremely tight in the mouth with biting tannins and some acid. It has flavors but seems very closed and tight at this tasting. Bought other 06's.
2005 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste
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!
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.
External Reviews for Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
The 2011 Grand Puy Lacoste is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot. It has a slight subdued nose that demands some coaxing and eventually, perhaps reluctantly offers aromas of blackberry, wild hedgerow, sous-bois and damp tobacco. I find ...

Lovely dark and purple color. Discreet and fruity nose. Smooth on entry the wine develops woven offering a fine fatness on the palate. Nice finish made of ripe tannins and normal length. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
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.

Jeff Leve. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Grand-Puy-Lacoste 6000ml
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.
"Overall, this is an elegant effort from Xavier Borie. A dark ruby/purple hue and a classic nose of smoky black currants and flowers are followed by a medium-bodied wine with more finesse and elegance than the blockbuster style seen in great vintages. Excellent vibrancy as well as definition. Enjoy it during its first 10-15 years of life." -Robert Parker Wine Advocate*We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*
