(From 1993 Vintage) Dark violet, the reflections are black and bright. The robe is thick and generous. The flavors are of juicy, slightly sun-baked black fruit. The aromas range from mocha to toast, characteristic of these rich and powerful wines. The mouth is opulent with smooth, firm, tannins, still young and full of promise. A persistent and long finish.
A concentrated wine of good color, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has enjoyed a solid reputation for big, durable full-bodied Pauillacs. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.
