Description

Similar to Lynch Bages, not only in style but also in far outperforming its classification, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has made wines in the last five years that are better than many Second Growths. Located on the Bages plateau the 30 to 60 year old vines to dig deep into the gravely soil and extract the mineral qualities that seem to be the signature of this chteau's wines. Extremely concentrated, with sweet, black cherries, cassis and flinty overtones on the nose. The restrained yet powerful palate displays classic Pauillac `grip' with ripe but firm tannins and attractive herbaceous hints supporting the pure, lush black fruit.
