A puzzling wine. 2011. Tart red fruit, herbal notes sent my group to Italy. Oak profile sent us back to France. This after I tasted an older vintage just a couple weeks ago. Definitely showing its vintage variation.

Honoring my marvelous father with a meal and wine he would have appreciated with gusto.  We wish he was here to share it with us, but are deeply grateful that his spiritual presence remains so strong in our hearts today and every day.  💕

This blend is predominantly (78%) Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot.  🍷 It hails from the Haut-Médoc region on the “left bank” of Bordeaux, 🇫🇷 more specifically, the Pauillac AOC.  Pauillac is a highly-regarded commune, with favorable growing conditions, known for producing some outstanding quality wines.  👌👌 This wine is no exception. 😆

🏰 Château Grad-Puy-Lacoste is a cru classé, ranked among, and a neighbor to, the region’s top estates.  It’s incredible to think the first vines planted on this property date back to the 1500s, making it one of the oldest properties in the region.

We decanted this wine for several hours, which helped it soften and release its layered aromatics.  

👁 The color is deep garnet with notable tearing.

👃 On the nose it has medium(+) intensity and concentration of developing aromas.  The aromas include ripe black fruit such as cassis, black cherry, blackberry, and plum, as well as other non-fruit notes like black licorice, pencil shavings, and violet. It has secondary notes of clove, nutmeg, allspice, cedar, also tertiary notes of wet earth, tobacco, leather, meat, fig, and mushroom.

👄 This wine is dry and its flavors on the palate are consistent with the nose.
This wine has balance, complexity, a strong structure, with firm, grippy tannins, and a long elegant finish.  👏👏

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, vintage 2011, ABV 13.5%.

In a beautiful place right now. Exactly what you want from a good bottle of Bordeaux. Black fruit, oak, soft tannins. Very enjoyable.

Place plum and lavender aromas on open. Raspberry jam, dried herbs and leather. Medium firm tannins. Soft, lush and plush.

Wonderful ’go to’ Bordeaux that can be enjoyed young-ish. Complex personality but what a lovely nose of dark fruits, oak and warm stones. If you want to drink proper Bordeaux without breaking your wallet, give this a go.
