2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

SKU #1005079 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste is an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar. Putting it to one side for ten to 15 minutes reveals subtle mint-like aromas that whisk you straight to Pauillac. The palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL so that you barely notice it. But that will stand it in good stead for the long-term, the cornerstone of all great wines from this estate. Then there is that hint of spice on the aftertaste—the show ain't over yet. Served alongside a magnum of Pichon Baron 2000, I would say that at the moment, it does not quite possess the same level of precision. However, it remains a magnificent Pauillac to cherish long-term. Tasted January 2016. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby-red. Exotic black fruits and spices on the nose, with notes of chocolate, smoke and game; showing its 29% Merlot component today. Rich, broad and chocolatey; sweet, creamy and superripe. A big, mouthfilling vintage for this chateau, combining a classic Pauillac medicinal character with the chocolatey ripeness of the vintage. Thick but nicely delineated, finishing with very broad, sweet tannins and excellent length. Like a more refined version of the 1990, says Francois-Xavier Borie. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2003)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A lovely, elegant version, with sweet tobacco and lightly singed cedar notes now taking the lead, while dried currant and warmed blackberry preserve flavors still have their say. The lengthy finish has a gentle, supple edge, with the dried fruit showing a sweet hint. Textbook aged Pauillac. (JM, Web-2016) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid ruby. Firm and, for the first time in this tasting I find myself writing the word 'mineral'. Sweet and pleasing and at first I wondered whether it was almost at its apogee, but it still has slightly aggressive acid and tannin on the palate. It's far from subtle but it does deliver. Quite marked acidity. Not the most luscious 2000 but very solid. Probably needs a bit more time. (JR) 17.5+/20 points Inner quote mark (3/2010)

We tasted quite a few 2000 Bordeaux one evening on the 2015 Bordeaux evaluation trip—what a treat, as the wines were stunning, especially the Giscours and this 2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste. We bought them and here they are—limited availability, of course. The Giscours was sweet and lovely, with the GPL having more strength and some tannins. Both were showing great, and they held up to Ch. Margaux and Ch. Haut-Brion, which were served at the same tasting.

A powerful and very elegant wine. Developed aromatics of truffles, brown sugar, along with sweet coffee, crème de cassis, plums and wet earth. On the palate it is almost creamy and incredibly soft, but still framed by the caressing tannins. Think of it as one of those rare wines you could drink now or leave in your cellars for another 20 years easily. It is excellent!
