A beautiful Pauillac, the 2018 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste has a classic nose of ripe blackcurrants, scorched earth, cedarwood, and tobacco. This Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste wine carries to a medium to full-bodied 2018 offering wonderful balance, ripe, polished tannins, and gorgeous purity of fruit. A Red wine that grows on you with time in the glass, it has building mid-palate depth and tannins, again, terrific balance, remarkable purity of fruit, and outstanding length on the finish.
One of the most classic wines in the Left Bank in 2018, this Grand Puy Lacoste is super-impressive right out of the gate. Ultimately a wine of tremendous class that remains restrained and aristocratic in breeding. The blend has a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) whose character and charm so perfectly express the richness and quality of this distinguished terroir.
