Grand Puy Lacoste

Like Lynch Bages this is another Pauillac chateau punching well above its fifth growth status.  Consistently on a par with the ‘super seconds’ the wines of Grand Puy Lacoste represent fantastic value.  See this note for the 1995 vintage by Robert Parker, 95 points:

Another unbelievably rich, multidimensional, broad-shouldered wine, with slightly more elegance and less weight than the powerhouse 1996, this gorgeously proportioned, medium to full-bodied, fabulously ripe, rich, cassis-scented and flavored Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a beauty. This classic Pauillac is a worthy rival to the other-worldly 1996. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025. Wow! What extraordinary wines Grand-Puy-Lacoste has produced in both 1995 and 1996. At present, I have a marginal preference for the blockbuster 1996, but I am not about to argue with anybody who prefers the 1995! Both are compelling wines.’
