Beautiful, intense, deep ruby-red colour, the nose exudes concentrated black fruits -blueberry- that evolve into black currant liquor (a classic of Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste wines) and hints of light peppery spices. The palate offers a dense and clear-cut attack that lingers on ripe, powerful, elegant tannins. This Pauillac displays beautiful balance and freshness followed by a long finish with intense chocolate notes. This 2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste carries the structure of superior vintages reflecting rich, complex soils all the while associating very ripe yet refined fruits and tannins.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a much more approachable nose than usual, vibrant with red cherries, wild strawberry and cedar aromas, backed up with mineral-soaked blackberry fruit. This gathers momentum wonderfully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. The acidity is very well judged with purity and elegance on the finish, if not the structure or backbone commonly found is very top vintages. I've been a bit conservative with my score at the moment, but I am sure it will prove its worth with 3-5 more years in bottle, hence the plus sign. One to watch.
