I raved about the 2006 Château Grand Puy-Lacoste when I tasted it from barrel ten years ago. It has evolved a really quite beautiful, very classic Pauillac bouquet with vivacious blackberry, raspberry and wild mint aromas that deftly absorb the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps a more forward "GPL" than other vintages, but there is genuine fineness to the tannin and that backward finish has great precision. There is the substance to suggest that it will be a long-term Left Bank and you could probably broach it after another 3-4 years. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Displays blueberry on the nose with a hint of fresh tobacco and some licorice. Full-bodied with chocolate berry and toasty oak. Long and very silky. Very pretty and balanced. Best after 2013. 13750 cases made. â_"JS

($75) Good dark red. Perfumed ineffable aromas of currant cherry skin floral oils and incense. Then juicy and penetrating on the palate with excellent concentration and thrust to the soil-inflected flavors of currant... ($75) Good dark red. Perfumed ineffable aromas of currant cherry skin floral oils and incense. Then juicy and penetrating on the palate with excellent concentration and thrust to the soil-inflected flavors of currant minerals and iron. Very suave pure wine with the structure to age.
