Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2011
Ready, but will keep

Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2011 owes its structure and style to a significant majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) which reflects the richness and potential of our terroir. Its color is a deep and intense red. The bouquet releases the typical aromas of black fruits and blackcurrant with added spices. The attack on the palate is pronounced, showing a structure that is both elegant and balanced. All together the wine allies finesse, freshness and persistence. We find this wine very much in the idiom of the fine vintages of Grand-Puy-Lacoste where elegance aligns with tannins which are both ripe and suave.

The licorice, tar and spice character with dried fruits and currants impresses. Full body with firm tannins and a chewy finish.
