Grand-Puy-Lacoste Bordeaux Blend Wine 1994

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Vivid aromas of raspberries licorice and cassis hints of oak. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and succulent fruit flavors that build on the palate. Better in 1999. Wine Spectator.

Grand-Puy-Lacoste s 1994 is a very good to excellent wine that falls just short of being outstanding. The wine displays a fine dark ruby/purple color an expressive open-knit bouquet of smoky oak and rich red and blackcurrants. It possesses surprising fat and opulence for a 1994 Medoc as well as a sweet mid-palate and moderate levels of firm tannin in the medium to full-bodied finish. It will be drinkable when released and capable of lasting for 12-15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
