The Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2004 presents a beautiful ruby red color. The nose is very dense and ripe, it offers a combination of blackberry and "pain grille" with added hints of spices. On the palate, this wine shows its harmonious structure. The tannins are well-balanced. This vintage has already started to express its personality but it will need few more years to show all its potential and developing as it does ever more complex flavours to give increasing pleasure.
