5ème cru classé

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, 5ème cru classé, 2010

RRP 798 (case of 12)

This has sweet, penetrating fruit on the nose – macerated strawberries and raspberries with rosewater and a hint of pomegranate molasses. The enveloping bouquet is far from the usual blue fruit character of GPL, but every bit as lovely. On the palate we get closer to the classic style, with darker, more pure and driven fruit – no hint of oversweetness here. Then come the trademark elegant, inky, chalky tannins. There’s a beautiful restraint to the power, and the finish is long.
