Tasting Notes

A wine which shows incredible elegance and depth. A bright redcurrant and plum bouquet with hints of cedar and spice, is followed by pure redcurrant flavours with dark fruits in the background. The tannins are very refined and harmonious and a vibrant, refreshing acidity gives definition and poise. Powerful, yet reserved, this is a real classic of the vintage. Drink 2017 - 2030

Reviews & Scores

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London and subsequently at the chateau. The 2010 Grand Puy Lacoste has a wonderful bouquet that is reticent at first, probably because it was tasted just three months after bottling. But there is patently great fruit intensity here: blackcurrant and a touch of pomegranate, interwoven with graphite and sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied is underpinned by wonderful freshness and vitality, marrying the austerity of both Pauillac and the vintage, with intense rather than concentrated fruit. It offers stunning definition, the finish quintessential Pauillac ? a little aloof, a little aristocratic, but utterly compelling. This will be a benchmark wine for the estate. Tasted November 2012.
