  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    Another unbelievably rich, multidimensional, broad-shouldered wine, with slightly more elegance and less weight than the powerhouse 1996, this gorgeously proportioned, medium to full-bodied, fabulously ripe, rich, cassis-scented and flavored Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a beauty. It should be drinkable within 4-5 years, and keep for 25-30. This classic Pauillac is a worthy rival to the other-worldly 1996.

    Blackish crimson. Sweet, ripe start with even a hint of milk chocolate on the nose. Fresh start. Not the purest expression of Pauillac. Just a tad New Worldy. But it certainly has appeal.

    Dark ruby-red. Ripe, expressive nose combines cassis, roasted plum and coconut. Supple, very concentrated and large-scaled; actually rather backward today even if the terrific ripeness is clear to see. Quintessential firm Pauillac backbone is covered by flesh. Will rely more on its tongue-dusting tannins than its acidity to age in bottle. This wine firmed up noticeably during its second year in barrel.

    Wonderful dark chocolate and berry aromas. Full-bodied and concentrated, with lovely, velvety tannins and a long, chocolaty aftertaste. Another winning GPL.

    Good but missing complexity and some sweetness, tannins a bit dry

    Still plenty of tannin and acidity left. Seems to be in a slightly dumb phase and not giving up much fruit - bouquet was quite reticent and mid-palate somewhat hollow. Slightly disappointing, considering the Spectator and Parker reviews. However, this wine may very well improve with three to five years more bottle age.

Located on the left bank of the Gironde River, a few miles from the town of Pauillac, Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste (also known as Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste-Saint-Guirons) is a Fifth Growth classified Bordeaux wine that continually outperforms its classification. The vineyards cover over 90 hectares growing primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Grand-Puy-Lacoste's wines are powerful, with distinct tannic structure, and rich blackcurrant and cassis notes which are the hallmarks of a good Pauillac. Cabernet Sauvignon is king at Grand-Puy-Lacoste, as the deep gravel topsoil with a limestone base is ideally suited for growing the grape. Cabernet is also what gives the wines their wonderful structure, and aging potential. The estate's second wine is called Lacoste-Borie.
