Tasting Note:

69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc. Xavier Borie does it year after year. Every time we taste at Grand Puy Lacoste we are always staggered by the consistency and high quality achieved both here and at Haut Batailley. We'd love to know his secret. Grand Puy Lacoste 2008 possess a real poise, freshness and complexity. This estate has produced an even more stylish offering than usual; cool and very classy. Lovely nose of compote fruit, plums, prunes, cloves, hedgerow fruit and menthol. Wonderful cassis attack with extremely pure and elegant fruit. One of the most stylish a hopefully one of the best value wines of the vintage.
