2009 Grand Puy Lacoste

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: Pauillac
95 (NM)
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

95

Wine Advocate

Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines 2005, 2000, 1990 and 1982), this is a great classic from Xavier Borie’s estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of spring flowers, crushed rocks, black currants, cedar and earth/underbrush. Precise and elegant as well as backward and foreboding, it should put on weight in the bottle and evolve for two decades. Very concentrated as well as velvety-textured, it is a beauty of finesse, balance, purity and nobility. It will benefit from 5-7 more years of bottle age.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #199, Feb 2012)

Neal Martin

The 2009 Grand Puy Lacoste is one of the great vintages from this estate in the modern era. It storms from the glass with scents of blackberry, undergrowth, cedar and mint, retaining the classicism of GPL. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity. Very harmonious with a gorgeous, lithe, graphite infused finish that lingers in the mouth. Bon vin. Tasted blind at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

Michael Schuster

[80CS/18M/2CF] Nothing showy on the nose, but a ripe, restrained, finely gravely fruit; wonderfully balanced, nicely concentrated, rich middleweight, very refinedly tannic, fleshy and supple, yet fresh and precise too; long, easy, fully ripe Cabernet richness to taste; subtle and complex, generous in juicy ripe fruit and aroma, racy, refreshing and Medoc minerally behind the delicious juiciness. Ease, harmony, and great length of gentle Cabernet fruit and gravel aromas. Superb, fully ripe and joyously fresh GPL, probably the best since 1961. Should be accessible early, and age beautifully, gracefully. Not big, but a perfect, effortless expression of claret, and of Pauillac. 2017-35+

James Suckling

Dark and delicately spicy this a very complete medium-full bodied 2009 that's not a jot too ripe or too firm. Beautiful balance through the long polished finish. Drink or hold. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
