The vines of Grand-Puy Lacoste lie on mounds of fast-draining gravels, well-exposed to beneficial breezes, which meant that they suffered no frost damage here. It is an impressively mature vineyard, the average age of the vines being 38 years. This superb 2017 wine was assembled from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, now ageing in 75% new barrels. In colour, a rich, deep purple, it has abundant, freshly ripe fruitiness on the nose. Palate is medium full, with a charmingly elegant fusion of intense fruitiness, gently mouth-coating tannins and stylish, long-lingering aftertaste (for drinking 20222038+).
