Pleasant, plummy nose with a hint of coconut. Quite an expansive palate with firm and pretty large tannins but a good weight of fruit – ripe cherry and plum – and well judged alcohol. I think this one needs time but feels a very solid GPL. As Mr Parker might say: a sleeper of the vintage?
Aromas of tobacco leaf, roasted herbs and red and black currants cascade from the glass of this medium-bodied, restrained, down-sized 2012 Grand Puy Lacoste. Displaying a dark ruby/purple color and no herbaceousness, this lighter-styled wine is somewhat reminiscent of the 1999 and 2001. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Drink: 2013 - 2025
Tasted en primeur at the château. The Grand Puy Lacoste 2012 is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot picked between 3rd and 16th October at 36hl/ha and matured in 75% new oak. The aromatics are reticent at first, demand coaxing from the glass. It reluctantly offers blackberry, small dark cherries and a fragrant seaweed scent. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins that appear fully ripe. There is a very attractive symmetry to this wine, wonderful focus with a fresh, refined finish that is not powerful like the 2009 or 2010, but offers a pleasant salty tang. This is a well crafted wine for the vintage. Tasted April 2013.
[76CS/24M] Closed but very minerally nose; supple, fresh, medium full, and very gently, finely firmly tannic wine; ripe, fleshy, subtly complex, long and juicy with both a ripe fruit and a marked minerality, long and easy and gently gratifying to taste, and with very nice length. Enormous charm, yes, but more than that. 2019-30 [M.Schuster, Bordeaux Mar/Apr 2013]
Racy, taut and mineral-driven, with iron coating the red currant and violet notes. Delivers a long, sleek finish. —J.M.
Extremely well done for the vintage with a serious depth of fruit and firm, silky tannins. Creamy texture and a mineral, dark fruit character.
