(From 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.
This wine presents an intense ruby red color. On the nose, it is very tempting, powerful with blackcurrant aromas, notes of cherry jam, black fruits raised of licorice and spices, the all combined with the freshness of the ripe grapes. In the mouth, we discover a wine with a race shape with strong notes of spices and black fruits and with a very long length. The wine is perfectly ripe with full-bodied tannins but voluptuous and with a great balance. This wine offers the beautiful expression of the terroir of this very typical Pauillac wine.
