The second has an attractive minty bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit laced with subtle marine/seaweed notes, a touch of graphite developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive tension and wonderful freshness right from the start. There is a sense of coiled up energy here and the finish just leaves you breathless. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin

There is a strong marine influence on the Grand Puy Lacoste 2010: seaweed and brine infused into the black fruit. It is very well defined and focused, building in intensity in the glass. The palate is silky smooth on the entry - very plush and sensual - with a cashmere texture that indicates some beautifully integrated creamy oak. It fans out wonderfully towards the finish, perhaps a little more modern in style than its peers but still beautifully crafted.

This is super. It has everything needed to compete with the big boys, except the price. With layer after layer of ripe, sweet, fresh, pure fruits, great textures, refined tannins and a long finish, when this hits...   This is super. It has everything needed to compete with the big boys, except the price. With layer after layer of ripe, sweet, fresh, pure fruits, great textures, refined tannins and a long finish, when this hits maturity, this is going to be a rockstar. If you're looking for a high quality, Classified Growth from the very expensive 2010 vintage, and you want the best wine for the money, this is the wine to buy.

Not giving away a lot at the finish at the moment. Reserved and sophisticated. But structured and chewy. Try in 2017.

Wonderful concentration on the nose: fragrance, dry herbs, dry cassis, all the Cabernet-Pauillac fruit with an added depth. Very good richness of fruit and a very good future.

(WE92-94 points) Very densely tannic wine the dry character of the wine a major element. This dryness gives the wine power without the fruit at this stage. It does have the weight for the future. - R.V.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a little subdued to begin, opening out to reveal notes of black cherries, stewed plums and blackberry preserves with hints of bouquet garni, tapenade and dried lavender...   Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a little subdued to begin, opening out to reveal notes of black cherries, stewed plums and blackberry preserves with hints of bouquet garni, tapenade and dried lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm, chewy texture and lively acidity, slightly over-shadowing the delicate, fading fruit, finishing on a stewed tea note.- LPB

This is dense but silky around the edges, with crushed plum and black currant fruit lined with roasted vanilla bean, tobacco and loam notes. Everything hangs solidly through the finish, lined with finely beaded acidity...   This is dense but silky around the edges, with crushed plum and black currant fruit lined with roasted vanilla bean, tobacco and loam notes. Everything hangs solidly through the finish, lined with finely beaded acidity and leaving an echo of singed anise. Best from 2015 through 2028. – JM
