Fill level: Question Mark Grape variety:

"The 2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste is an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar. Putting it to one side for ten to 15 minutes reveals subtle mint-like aromas that whisk you straight to Pauillac. The palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL so that you barely notice it. But that will stand it in good stead for the long-term, the cornerstone of all great wines from this estate. Then there is that hint of spice on the aftertaste—the show ain't over yet. Served alongside a magnum of Pichon Baron 2000, I would say that at the moment, it does not quite possess the same level of precision. However, it remains a magnificent Pauillac to cherish long-term. Drink: 2020 - 2045

Score: 95 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (225), July 2016"

Other details

This was given to me by kind friends and had been stored in a regulated cellar until mid-January 2019. Since then it has been in my coolest utility room at the back of the house.
