Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines 2005, 2000, 1990 and 1982), this is a great classic from Xavier Borie’s estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of spring flowers, crushed rocks, black currants, cedar and earth/underbrush. Precise and elegant as well as backward and foreboding, it should put on weight in the bottle and evolve for two decades. Very concentrated as well as velvety-textured, it is a beauty of finesse, balance, purity and nobility. It will benefit from 5-7 more years of bottle age.

The 2009 Grand Puy Lacoste is one of the great vintages from this estate in the modern era. It storms from the glass with scents of blackberry, undergrowth, cedar and mint, retaining the classicism of GPL. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity. Very harmonious with a gorgeous, lithe, graphite infused finish that lingers in the mouth. Bon vin. Tasted blind at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

[80CS/18M/2CF] Nothing showy on the nose, but a ripe, restrained, finely gravely fruit; wonderfully balanced, nicely concentrated, rich middleweight, very refinedly tannic, fleshy and supple, yet fresh and precise too; long, easy, fully ripe Cabernet richness to taste; subtle and complex, generous in juicy ripe fruit and aroma, racy, refreshing and Medoc minerally behind the delicious juiciness. Ease, harmony, and great length of gentle Cabernet fruit and gravel aromas. Superb, fully ripe and joyously fresh GPL, probably the best since 1961. Should be accessible early, and age beautifully, gracefully. Not big, but a perfect, effortless expression of claret, and of Pauillac. 2017-35+

Dark and delicately spicy this a very complete medium-full bodied 2009 that's not a jot too ripe or too firm. Beautiful balance through the long polished finish. Drink or hold. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
