Reviews for 2011 Grand-Puy-Lacoste Bordeaux Blend

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2014
The licorice, tar and spice character with dried fruits and currants impresses me. Full body with firm tannins and a chewy finish. This is even better now than from barrel. Better in 2019.

The 2011 Grand Puy Lacoste is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot. It has a slight subdued nose that demands some coaxing and eventually perhaps reluctantly offers aromas of blackberry wild hedgerow sous-bois and damp tobacco. I find it missing a little vivacity and precision. The palate has a crisp brine-tinged entry with chalky tannins. Typically masculine and austere quite edgy and tense the 2011 is a straight down the fairway quintessential Pauillac with cedar and strong graphite notes on the finish. Leaving it for another five minutes there is a cheeky scent of orange that develops in the glass and then...poof...it's gone again. This is an intriguing Pauillac that keeps you on your toes. Tasted April 2012.

The dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 Grand Puy Lacoste exhibits a charming, open-knit bouquet of red and black fruits.

The dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 Grand Puy Lacoste exhibits a charming, open-knit bouquet of red and black fruits. It is a savory, medium-bodied, flavorful, well-endowed Pauillac from Xavier Borie that can be enjoyed over the next 10-15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Nice fresh floral style with violet and sandalwood notes up front followed by a core of plum bergamot and cherry sauce flavors. Lightly dusty finish. Has some weight in reserve and so could flesh out more.-J.M.

Harvest occurred between September 15th and 29th. Very dark in color almost opaque at the core and very primary on the nose. The palate offers a very juicy frame of black and purple fruits and a chalky texture in the mouth. With good balanced acidity it offers a long lingering finish. Jacques and Eric Boissenot consult. Enjoy 2017-2027.
