Still young-tobacco-gravelly dark fruit. Letting it air for 30 minutes after initial taste at least.

Vintage 2006 - combines power with elegance. Velvety taste. Evolution in colour, very rich nose with chocolate, cedar, red fruit. #pauillac

Perfectly balanced and great earthiness but lacking the vibrancy you might expect from this producer.

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.

This is in a perfect place. Floral nose with red fruits. Smooth and beautiful with a great finish.

The treat of the evening. I love the mineral component. 2000 vintage is hitting its stride.

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.
