2008 Grand Puy Lacoste

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2008
Appellation: Pauillac
94 (JA)
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste is one of our perennial favourite producers and a Chateau that creates consistently top quality wines year on year. Grand Puy Lacoste is owned and run by Xavier Borie and is a Fifth Growth Pauillac estate; however, this Chateau has been outperforming its 5th Growth status for many years, producing wines of exceptional quality and great elegance with rich black fruits, epitomizing great Pauillac. “Readers will know that I hold Grand Puy Lacoste up as the bastion of quintessential Pauillac” says Neal Martin and we certainly believe that nothing – outside of Chateau Latour – actually delivers that truly inimitable graphite, gravel and cedar character that typifies this rare region quite like Grand Puy Lacoste.

Tasting Notes and Scores

89

Wine Advocate

Unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with plums, red and black currants presented in an evolved style characterize this dark plum/garnet-colored effort. Medium-bodied, delicious and evolved, it is best consumed over the next 10-12 years.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #194, May 2011)

Neal Martin

The 2008 Grand Puy Lacoste has a very expressive bouquet with blackberry, cedar and graphite notes, quintessentially Pauillac, building in intensity all the time in the glass but remaining "correct". The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry, more red fruit here than black, good density with a fine bead of acidity. This all leads to a cohesive finish that might be more forward than I expected or would have liked. It is a fine GPL albeit one that feels conservative and does not reach for the stars like other vintages under Xavier Borie. (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.) - vinous.com, Feb 2018

Stephen Tanzer

Full red-ruby. Brooding aromas of medicinal blackcurrant, plum, menthol, spices and cocoa powder. Lush and fine-grained but youthfully closed, offering moderate sweetness today but noteworthy breadth for the vintage. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and very good length.

Decanter

You start to feel the dial turning up the power as this travels through the palate. Even at 10 years old, the tannins go in deep around the fruit, with luscious menthol notes on the finish. This is one of the juiciest of the Pauillacs, with layers of plum fruits, tobacco and melted tannins. It's totally firing on all cylinders, although not a blockbuster, reflective of this vintage. But that means you can drink this now, or you can wait; either way you can enjoy what is going on here.
