Tasting Notes Grand Puy Lacoste 2009

95

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.

Complex and decadent. Blackberries and black currants, with fresh herbs on the nose. Tea too. Full body, with soft tannins and an earthy finish. Juicy wine. Turns to pure black currants. Best in 2018.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Grand Puy Lacoste '09 has a slightly more reticent nose against its peers, but no less intriguing with aromas of blackberry, pencil shavings, a touch of undergrowth and mint. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of spice on the entry. The build is more immediate here, a wave of intense black fruits crashing across the palate that tingles with glee long after the wine is ejected. This is a long-term wine that will repay a decade at least in the cellar. Tasted January 2013.
