Nose

The bouquet is of ripe black fruit, violets and spices. Complemented by an attractive mineral freshness.

Palate

On the palate the first impression is of clean, balanced and persistent fruit, carried by its ripe and rounded tannins. The wine is finely knit, combining charm, elegance and freshness, with a long pure finish and pronounced aromatics. Yet again, this fine vintage with its richness and complexity displays the impressive terroir of Grand Puy Lacoste. This can certainly be numbered among the great successes of the property.
