This Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2006, with a deep, dark red colour, reveals some flavours of blackcurrant liqueur, and in mouth expresses an elegant and beautiful concentration. The unit, with a velvet and long finale, conceals very round tannins. This wine could be already enjoy, but it preserves a beautiful ageing potential.

Wine AdvocateWhile not at the level of the phenomenal 2005, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has produced another classic wine with the creme de cassis fruit that I often find in both Mouton Rothschild and Pontet-Canet, yet both of those vineyards are closer to the Gironde River. This wine has a pure personality, with the aforementioned classic creme de cassis notes, medium to full body, beautiful density, purity, texture, and length. If anything, this recalls a hypothetical blend of their brilliant 1995 and 1996. Tannins are elevated, so patience will be required. This was Xavier Borie's first vintage in his new state-of-the-art winemaking facility. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.

Wine SpectatorDisplays blueberry on the nose, with a hint of fresh tobacco and some licorice. Full-bodied, with chocolate, berry and toasty oak. Long and very silky. Very pretty and balanced. Best after 2013. 13,750 cases made.
