Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac 2019

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac 2019

RRP £47

Like Lynch Bages, this underrated 5th Growth typifies top Pauillac for a great price. Blending 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, the high alcohol is well balanced by acidity and freshness, with juicy black cherry, ripe cassis, lead pencil and refreshing mint.  Fine tannin, excellent density and very long on the finish. Aged in 75% new oak.
