The 2014 Grand-Puy Lacoste has a bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry, mint and graphite, well defined and focused. It does not have to try too hard to give so much pleasure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very crisp acidity, beautifully proportioned with a veneer of top quality new oak that will need three or four years to be fully subsumed. But the purity and elegance of this Pauillac cannot be denied – a quite brilliant contribution to the 2014 vintage. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, March 2018)

Ready to go and showing no signs of distress. If anything, it's still a bit compact, given the age and classification.

Smells like a race horse this one, smoky, sadle leather, very light tough of brett with some very broody Danson fruit, wood smoke, Chinese spice. Well evolved palate with plush blue and black fruit and powdery tannins. Really drinking very well at the mo.

This was a great classic Paulliac. Still very young but will be great in several years. Good value.
