"Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2015 is composed of a majority of cabernet sauvignon (74%) which gives it a fine, smooth framework, again showing the expression and potential of the terroir. This wine has a lovely deep garnet colour. A fine bouquet reveals aromas of black fruit complemented by a touch of cassis, all subtly lifted by a hint of vanilla spice. On the palate, the initial impression is precise and linear; the palate shows ripe, well balanced and well integrated tannins. Overall a wine with charm, elegance and freshness and a very nice clean finish." —winemaker

Blend: 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc
"The 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, matured in 75% new oak and was picked between September 18 until October 4 (although the "real" picking commenced from September 21). Now, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is often quite "aloof" at this early juncture, but that is not the case with the 2015. This is more approachable aromatically, beautifully defined, thanks to that expressive Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin and finely tuned acidity (pH 3.68). Beguilingly harmonious in the mouth, it boasts a silky smooth texture with wonderful salinity on the aftertaste that is sustained in the mouth. As usual, Xavier Borie has produced a "classic" Pauillac, but one that is a little more appeasing to those that don't want to cellar for 20-30 years. You could describe the 2015 as being between 2009 and 2010...and that, folks, is not a bad place to be." —Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

"This is very fine and elegant GPL with black currant and hints of walnuts, chocolate. Full body, sweet and pretty tannins. Persistent. So polished." —JamesSuckling.com

"A rich, super-finessed wine, the 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste brings together the ripeness of the vintage and classic elegance of Pauillac in stunning style. Today, the 2015 is gloriously ripe and intense, with fabulous follow-through and remarkable balance. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, exotic, spice and blood orange hit the flamboyant finish. This is one of the wines of the vintage. Don't miss it. Tasted four times." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
