Tasting Note:

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, this is one classy GPL, which we think looks like a modern day, sweeter fruited 1996. There’s such a wonderful bouquet of pure raspberry, sumptuous griotte, meadow flowers and sandalwood. The palate is slightly glossier and more velour in texture than normal - it gives the impression of a more luxuriant GPL, but under that veneer, there is a real seam of classicism: gravelly black fruit and minerals, leafy cassis, interspersed with red cherry and cranberries; it’s very serious and complete, powerful, yet graceful, ripe, but taut, fruity, still deeply mineral. This is a picture of poise and elegance, framed by elaborate tannins, which paint a fine weave of detail on the magnificent finish. We are in no doubt, this is a superb Grand Puy Lacoste that ranks amongst the very best vintages we’ve tasted during Xavier’s career. This is a ‘must-buy’ wine in 2019!
