Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker

This is unquestionably a profound Grand-Puy-Lacoste, but it is excruciatingly backward. It reveals an essence of creme de cassis character which sets it apart from other Pauillacs. The wine is displaying plenty of tannin, huge body, and sweet black currant fruit intermixed with minerals and subtle oak. Massive, extremely structured, and with 25-30 or more years of longevity, this immensely-styled Grand-Puy-Lacoste will require 7-8 years of patience, perhaps longer. A superb, classic Pauillac.

A seamless, pretty '96 claret. Extremely fruity aromas of plums and blackberries. Medium-bodied, with polished tannins and silky texture. 14,000 cases made.

this is now a classic. still a powerhouse, it took a full 40 minutes to open up. then it evolved into a complex, brooding beauty with deep sweet black currant fruit balanced with minerality and subtle oak in a massively structured immense bordeaux.
