Pauillac, Bordeaux, FRANCE
$140.00 Bottle
  • Cellar 6 - 8 years (2023-2025)
  • ABV 13.5%
  • Closure: Cork

Excellent colour displaying a midnight black dark red core with a dark red black tinged hue. Perfumed aromatics of blackcurrant tinged with violets are followed by hints of ripe mulberry and red currant with some vanillin cedar, light earth and spice also chiming in. The very refined palate shows great finesse yet there’s an understated richness to the ripe red currant and mulberry fruits which sit atop spicy vanillin cedar and traces of scorched earth. Slightly dryish finish with finely grained tannins and well judged acidity show deft balance to the fruit. Long aftertaste of ripe red currant, mulberry, dusty vanillin cedar and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Alc 13.5%

Other Reviews...
The Château Grand Puy Lacoste 2014 is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot between 25 September and 9 October at 33 hectoliter per hectare. The aromatics are not as immediate as the Haut-Batailley and demand more coaxing from the glass, but that comes with the territory. It unfurls with each swirl, black fruits at first, then GPL's trademark, graphite and gravel scents storm into the room. Leaving the glass aside for 10 minutes there is a distant tang of shucked oyster shells. The palate is understated on the entry. This is not a powerhouse Grand-Puy-Lacoste, rather one that emphasizes finesse and precision. It is almost unerringly low-key and yet there is an enormous length already in place. As usual, I suspect that its secrets (or at least some of them) will be unlocked during its barrel maturation. One of the appellation's most cerebral offerings. Drink 2020 - 2045.

Neal Martin eRobertParker.com # 218 (Apr 2015)

Rock-solid, with a gutsy core of plum, black currant, steeped fig and melted licorice snap, all carried by a gorgeous, charcoal-edged spine. Long, and loaded with fruit and grip. As solid as they come.

J.M.- Wine Spectator

All the clarity and depth expected of GPL, with an added level of fragrance, elegance and purity. Simply wonderful in this vintage.

Decanter

Vibrant and pulsating in the glass, the 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste impresses for its superb overall balance. The flavors are bright and beautifully expressive, with sweet floral notes woven throughout that give the wine much of its nuance, while the seamless, silky tannins speak to finesse. Even with all of its explosive energy, the 2014 is not an obvious or huge wine; rather it is a Pauillac that draws the taster in with its multiple shades of dimension. A wine of true class and pedigree, the Grand Puy Lacoste is shaping up to be a real gem in this vintage. Tasted twice.

Antonio Galloni – Vinous

This is a wine with a dense center, wonderful fruit, polished and refined tannins and a persistent finish. Full-bodied, long and intense. Beautiful pure cabernet character. Real wine. 82% cabernet sauvignon and 18% merlot. Higher percentage of cabernet than normal.
