Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2004

91+ points

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Considerable new oak aromas, a touch of flyspray astringency.

A dark strong wine with lashing of oak, that impart astringency but also a touch of creaminess. This is quite a bold GPL, one of the best in recent years (and hence best value too given the restrained prices of 2004). I expect this wine will have a very long future of fine drinking. If you have some in your cellar you should be pleased.

  2. 3 years later (2011) and this wine is still young, but it hasn’t closed up. A great wine, far from the crazy prices of 2009 and 2010, 2004 really is a drinkers vintage.
