Grand Puy Lacoste 2001
Tasting Notes Grand Puy Lacoste 2001
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. Showing some maturity on the rim, this has a very opulent bouquet with degraded fruit: crushed strawberry, pomegranate, chestnut, a touch of toffee and undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight meaty edge on the entry, fresh acidity here, firm grip with a savoury touch on the sweet, fleshy finish. Very fine, though I am surprised I forward this bottle showed. Tasted March 2011.
A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by this property’s tell-tale cassis characteristics. Medium-bodied and monolithic, with fine ripeness as well as depth along with light to moderate tannin in the finish, the 2001 Grand-Puy-Lacoste should be at its peak between 2006-2014.
