International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($43-$50) Good red-ruby color. Very ripe aromas of redcurrant and smoke. Dense and sweet but a tad rustic, with flavors of roasted dark fruits, chocolate and menthol. Offers a smooth texture, ripe acidity and sneaky length, but could use more precision of flavor and thrust.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 164

An atypically superficial effort from one of my favorite Pauillacs, the 2003 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is very good, but it does not stand up to some of the finest northern Medoc offerings. A deep ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a moderately intense bouquet of black currants and underbrush. It hits the palate with good fruit and medium body, but tails off in the finish. It is an elegant, lighter-styled example of this generally high-class performer. It can be consumed over the next 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Blackberry and licorice aromas, with full body, very fine tannins and a long finish. Very silky. So much for jammy wines in 2003. Very fresh and refined. 15,555 cases made.

Color: dark crimson core, ever so slight bricking Nose: beautiful full and caressing aromatics, dried black berries, fresh flowers, creme d' cassis, subtle smoky oak Palate: the flavors from the nose release onto the palate, esp the berries and cassis, noticeable pepper traces at first mellow later, meat and some orange peel. Interesting stuff.
