Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste Pauillac Grand Cru Classe 2013


Colour: Clear Medium Ruby

Nose: Ripe black currant, plum, violet, graphite, tobacco, faint smoke.

Palate: Dry, full bodied, medium+ acidity, full tannins. Black currant, plum, blackberry, liquorice.

Finish: Long finish, mineral, cedar.

Score: 81+/100

 

Really young at the moment, and the 2013 vintage isn’t exactly helping. Black fruit driven on the nose and palate, with nice tobacco and graphite minerality to add to the complexity. At roughly the same youthful age(3-4 years old), the 2005 and 2010 I had previously were completely different beast. I would hold off this one for at least 5-10 more years, got potential, but expecting a shorter drinking window.


0-49 = Terrible

50-59 = Bad

60-79 = Ok-Good

80-84 = Good

85-89 = Very Good

90-95 = Excellent

96-99 = Magnificent

100 = Legendary

Gets exponentially harder to score higher, only the exceptional ones deserves 90+. Price does not affect my scores.
