Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2009, Pauillac


Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2009 is a wine that presents a very deep, dark red colour. The bouquet reveals complex aromas of dark fruits and hints of ripe blackcurrant. The palate is precise, very dense, and displays an exceptional velvety richness. The tannins are suave and elegant. Showing a beautiful complexity, combining smoothness and purity, it is a very well balanced wine with spectacular length. It is a Grand-Puy-Lacoste with the promise of a very bright future.

A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, harvested between 24th September and 7th October, 2009. The grapes were sorted during two successive selections, both before and after the de-stemming process. After a three week maceration period, the fermented juice was transferred into 70% new French oak barrels for 18 months.

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines from 2005, 2000, 1990 and 1982), this is a great classic from Xavier Borie’s estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple colour is followed by hints of spring flowers, crushed rocks, blackcurrants, cedar and earth/underbrush. Precise and elegant as well as backward and foreboding, it should put on weight in the bottle and evolve for two decades. Very concentrated as well as velvety-textured, it is a beauty of finesse, balance, purity and nobility. It will benefit from 5-7 more years of bottle age. 02/13. 95 Points
