The intense red-hued 2008 Grand-Puy-Lacoste opens up with a luscious bouquet of black fruits with commanding cassis notes for true freshness. The palate offers lovely precision on the attack, very flavourful with generous fruits and beautiful complexity. This Pauillac is distinguished, persistent and well-balanced. This rare Grand-Puy-Lacoste can be enjoyed early or in a decade.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with plums, red and black currants presented in an evolved style characterize this dark plum/garnet-colored effort. Medium-bodied, delicious and evolved, it is best consumed over the next 10-12 years.
