Grand Puy Lacoste 97-99nm Premier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"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 and a faint tang of Japanese nori (seaweed.) Very good complexity. The palate is beautifully balanced, this GPL revelling in this vintage that countenances the Cabernet Sauvignon so much. Very refined, powerful, beautifully focused with an unerring sense of symmetry. This is a magnificent Pauillac…bravo Xavier. Drink 2020- Tasted March 2011...97-99" Neal Martin The Wine Journal erobertparker.com
