Grand-Puy-Lacoste Bordeaux Blend Wine Premier 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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.
