90-94 / 100
(04-2008) Tasted at the chateau, you are immediately struck by the smokiness of the nose: cooked meats, a touch of burnt buttered toast just explodes from the glass. The palate is full-bodied with an over-riding meatiness to it, lovely balance, fleshy as one expects from an ’85, but married to Grand-Puy-Lacoste’s inherent austerity this makes for a “complete” wine experience. Savoury black fruits on the well-poised finish that just lacks the length of the ’90. But still a lovely wine. Tasted April 2008.
(10-1994) Burly wine. Deep and dark-colored with an iron backbone of tannins. Plenty of licorice and fruit character. Needs time to come into harmony.
(12-2001) A fragrant, cedary, refreshing nose that opened up beautifully in the glass; sweet entry, soft, rich, good fruit mid-palate. delicious. A charmer.Lovely now. Another 10-15 years.
