Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, 5eme Grand Cru Classe, Bordeaux, France, Magnum, 2001

Grapes: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, hand picked fruit from 55ha of gravel soil vineyards with an average vine age of 38 years. 16-18 months ageing in French oak barrels (70% new).

This vintage presents an intense ruby red colour. On the nose, it is very tempting, powerful with blackcurrant aromas, notes of cherry jam, black fruits raised of liquorice and spices, the all combined with the freshness of the ripe grapes. In the mouth, we discover a wine with a race shape with strong notes of spices and black fruits and with a very long length. The wine is perfectly ripe with full-bodied tannins but voluptuous and with a great balance. This wine offers the beautiful expression of the terroir of this very typical Pauillac wine.

 "A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by this property’s tell-tale cassis characteristics. Medium-bodied and monolithic, with fine ripeness as well as depth along with light to moderate tannin in the finish"

88/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate, June 2004

 

"Good deep black crimson. Very nicely balanced and evolved. Very complete. Lifted and beautifully balanced. Very fresh and precise. Not as concentrated as some vintages of this wine (almost light!) but lovely now."

17.5/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, March 2012
