Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

*This is a 2011 Future. Delivery Fall 2014.*"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's Wine Advocate* *We will notify on arrival autumn 2014*

Stemmy, herbal, and with classic black currant fruit on the nose this showily nicely nuanced and powerful yet with a sense of restraint, showing off late arriving coffee cream toasty oak spice aromas. Classic austere, restrained Bordeaux in the mouth, with excellent balance, this has good depth, though perhaps just a touch soft, there are nice lacy tannins, and while this closes upon the mouth it finishes with great length and subtle nuance. Not a powerhouse but lovely. 92pts
