    The 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste conveys the amazing expressions of Medoc grape varieties -particularly Cabernet Sauvignon- during a unique vintage year! The gorgeous dark garnet colour exudes a characteristically young bouquet of brandied raspberry, pureed blackberry, juicy Morello cherry, and balsamic hints of cedar. Aeration confirms the generosity of this Pauillac, with the distinctive freshness of perfectly matured Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste offers a clear-cut, vibrant attack, followed by a juicy, scrumptious mid-palate, full, powerful yet elegant with integrated yet defined tannins. The long, silky structure displays strong fruits and volume: a pure pleasure, timeless, persisting all the way to the finish. A great success! This 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste naturally opens-up early while offering outstanding ageing potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Pure crème de cassis, licorice and spice are all present in this wine from Xavier Borie. Medium to full-bodied and ripe, with sweet tannin and a nicely textured mouthfeel, this is a beauty that should continue to drink well for another 15 or so years.
