This must be the most harmonious and complete Grand Puy Lacoste shown at this stage (it can sometimes have a slightly herbal or medicinal greenness at the primeur tastings). None of that here - powerful, spicy, rich and long, with a mid-palate which is almost oily in its richness - it's gorgeous. L&S (Mar 2005)

The nose has the sweetness of ripe cassis and black plum and the palate is fleshy supple with the richness of chocolate, liquorice and coffee. The tannins on the mid palate are firm but not aggressive giving structure but not over dominating. The finish is firmer slightly dry with a touch of spicy cedar wood. 2013-18 Rating: 89 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)
Reminiscent of the 1990, this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc possesses low acidity, good ripeness (but not over-ripe), and Grand-Puy-Lacoste’s classic creme de cassis character well-displayed. Medium to full-bodied with noticeable tannin in the finish, it is a heady, rich, beautifully made Pauillac that should be drinkable within 3-4 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018.
