2015 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 'Lacoste-Borie' Pauillac
Winemaker Notes: Licorice and violets with berries and currants and spices. Full and silky. Very fine. Features a solid black currant, licorice and tobacco core, with well-embedded tarry grip. More approachable than most, showing solid vintage and AOC character.
Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc it is very much a little GPL with its beautifully Cabernet scented bouquet of lilacs, cassis and minerals. The palate is crunchy and black fruited with hints of juicy damsons. There is definitely greater precision to the fruit and the tannins are more refined than normal.
Tim Atkin - "The second wine of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a wine for claret drinkers rather than points junkies. Typically floral and refined, with very gentle oaking, it’s a more serious wine than it seems at first, showing supporting tannins, a twist of vanilla spice and refreshing acidity. Drink: 2020-25"
James Suckling - "Soft and silky second wine of Grand Puy Lacost. Medium to full body, juicy fruit and a velvety tannic finish." (90-91pts)
