Description

A wine that needs no introduction, not from a classic year in Bordeaux but very drinkable all the same.
I bought a 12 bottle OWC last year from A reputable wine merchant. Drinking some and selling some.

The 2008 Grand Puy Lacoste has a very expressive bouquet with blackberry, cedar and graphite notes, quintessentially Pauillac, building in intensity all the time in the glass but remaining "correct". The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry, more red fruit here than black, good density with a fine bead of acidity. This all leads to a cohesive finish that might be more forward than I expected or would have liked. It is a fine GPL albeit one that feels conservative and does not reach for the stars like other vintages under Xavier Borie. 2019 - 2033
