(2005 Vintage) The 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste exhibits classic Pauillac aromas. It is a beautiful, dense purple-tinged effort displaying a sweet, pure perfume of crème de cassis, flowers and wet stones. With a fabulous ripeness, it is a full-bodied wine with a fleshy attack, mid-palate and finish. It offers a gorgeous length as well as richness. The purity of this beauty's black currant fruit is something to behold.
