The 2016 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste wine has a superb, vibrant, tobacco-infused bouquet that soars from the glass; it is extremely well defined and classic, just as you expect from this Pauillac. The medium-bodied palate displays succulent tannin that hides the backbone supporting this wine. It is more approachable than the Grand Puy Lacoste of a decade ago, yet retains the essence of its terroir. This is one of the most elegant Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste wine of recent years. The 2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a powerful, exciting wine. Drink 2023-2055.
