Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93 WS / 93 JS / 91 RP / 17.5 JR

Well-built, with a charcoal frame that melds nicely with steeped currant, blackberry paste and dark plum fruit flavors. The long finish is riveted to a graphite underpinning. Remarkably dense, but without the austere twinge of the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 11,665 cases made.- James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

This is very muscular with blackcurrant, blueberry and mineral character. Full and tight now but this shows a serious backbone of tannins and length. Try in 2018. - James Suckling

Always a favorite among consumers, Xavier Borie’s is a fifth-growth Pauillac that consistently performs at a much higher level. The 2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has the classic, tell-tale crème de cassis as well as some bluer fruits and floral notes. Medium-bodied, its ripe tannin, beautiful fruit and low acidity give it an up-front appeal. There’s no harm in drinking it now or cellaring it for another 12-15+ years. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Tasted blind. Dark polished crimson. Hemp on the nose. Soft and flattering with sufficient ripe fruit. Well made without resort to artifice. Some interest. A bit overdone but very dense. Dramatic. - Jancis Robinson
