Opaque purple robe with violet rim. Clean and beautiful nose, showing moderately intense black cherry, mineral, cassis, coffee and vanilla aromas. Integrated tannins here with a very plush mouthfeel.
Spicy, smoky oak underpins fruit. Structured with luscious curranty fruit and pauillac tobacco and pencil shaving notes on the palate. Firm yes, but generous too.
Customers may have noted that Grand-Puy-Lacoste has been a favourite bordeaux of ours over the years and nothing about the 2001 has changed this view! Pure, fresh and very harmonious, this is utterly delicious. A wine which will provide much pleasure.
Deep intense purple colour, with a striking aroma of violets. On the palate this is a very rounded wine, with intense power and structure, supported by robust tannins and a finish characterised by fleshy Cabernet fruit flavours. An excellent example of Château Latour. 12- 25
Ever-dependable Grand-Puy-Lacoste - the 2002 shows a firm nature with an assertive structure with good concentration and a typical Pauillac meaty edge. A pleasing, classic Pauillac that has lost the ungainly qualities it displayed en primeur.
Deep, dense and almost opaque in colour with a restrained nose of cassis and plum. The palate has a core of dark fruit, cedar wood and a rich violet edge. There is firm structure here but the tannins are ripe and well integrated. Styled in a similar vein to the highly impressive grand vin, this shows terrific promise.
An equal blend of Merlot and Cabernets, this wine shows what could be done with fine quality Merlot in 2003. Lovely deep dark colour with hints of blackberries on the nose and very plump fruit in the palate, this is dense and structured with an appealing finesse on the finish. A long classicaly-structured wine.
