Something about Grand Puy Lacoste
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste has changed little since its admission to the imperial classification of 1855. With the same configuration that was registered at its classification, the estate is comprised of a vineyard consisting of a single piece of 55 hectares planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. This Fifth Classified Growth in Pauillac has great strength and produces classic and seductive wines.

Tasted at the chateau, the 2001 at ten years of age has superb intensity on the nose with black cherries, melted tar, graphite and cold black tea all with fine vigour and vivacity. The palate is medium-bodied with a cohesive, quite powerful entry that sets the stage for a very poised, focused GPL. From its rather awkward showings out of barrel, the 2001 is blossoming into a sublime expression of Pauillac in this vintage. I would still afford it more time though. Tasted March 2011.
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.
