Grand Puy Lacoste is one of my favourites, but one has to pay attention to the vintage quality. In average vintages the wine is a nice guy, but in the top vintages, like 1982, 1990, 2000 and now the 2005 it reaches a quality of its own. The wine is intense, passionate, sumptuous to a fault and has both a beautiful and a powerful personality.
| Eugene Bergen, WineIsuppose
The brilliant 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste exhibits classic Pauillac aromas and flavors of creme de cassis along with stony/floral notes. Proprietor Xavier Borie has created a wine that should rival the brilliant 1982, 1990, 1996, and 2000. Full-bodied with sweet tannin and superb length (a 40+ second finish), the purity of this beauty's black currant fruit is something to behold.
