2020 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Cru Classé Pauillac

The 2020 GPL is a gorgeous wine. Notes of blackcurrent and wild flowers spring from the glass, while the palate is stony yet silky, with incredible tension yet richness of fruit. This seems to get better and better every year. A must buy.

TASTING NOTES

This full-bodied red builds on the palate in a fantastic way with tight, compact tannins that grow and grow on the finish. Plenty of blackcurrant and graphite character and a flavorful finish. Same level as the excellent 2016.
