The 2019 Grand-PuyLacoste has a well-defined bouquet with cedar and graphite infused black fruit, hints of pencil shavings, controlled and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins, taut and fresh with a pixelated and mineral-driven finish, lingering long in the mouth. What a heavenly 2019 Pauillac. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is straight-up brilliant and the finest vintage I've tasted from this Chateau. Boasting a saturated purple/ruby hue as well as fabulous notes of blackcurrants, damp earth, freshly sharpened pencils, iron, and an almost meaty character, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a rich, concentrated, opulent mouthfeel, building yet perfectly ripe tannins, and a finish that won't quit. Its purity, concentration, balance, and elegance are world-class. It offers pleasure today (as do most 2019s) yet will won't hit its prime drink window for another 7-8 years and have three decades of longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck
A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, the 2019 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is deep garnet-purple in color. It offers up fragrant notes of lilacs, licorice, and dark chocolate over a core of blackcurrant jelly and blackberry pie. The medium to full-bodied palate is an exercise in elegance, with lovely freshness and fine-grained tannins, finishing long and perfumed.-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent
The 2019 Grand-Puy-Lacoste exhibits notions of minty cassis, plums, loamy soil, burning embers and cigar wrapper, followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and velvety palate that’s deep and concentrated, its generous core of lively fruit concealing an elegantly muscular chassis of ripe, powdery tannin. Consisting of fully 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is another true classic from the Borie family. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Generous nose, I love the smell here, richly fruited. The palate is on the linear, darker side with liquorice and coffee tones, lean and muscular - without any extra fat. A little austere at this point but good freshness and some bright cherry flavours on the finish. Overall a dark, heady, deep style with plenty of power, just waiting to open and expand. Give it some time. Drinking Window 2026 - 2038. - GH, Decanter
Inky and glass-staining damson colour, with enjoyable aromatics, slow building power that is tempered and softened by waves of violet and peony. Knitted down, muscular tannins build a wall around the black fruits. This is concentrated, signature Pauillac just as it was En Primeur, majoring on pencil lead, cloves, liquorice and cocoa bean. 41hl/h yield, 75% new oak. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
This is a very polished young wine with lemon-rind, blackcurrant, cedar and lavender character. It’s full, yet so refined and sophisticated, with floral undertones to the pretty fruit. The tannins are intense and long. Give this at least five or six years to soften. Try after 2025. - James Suckling
Dark but vibrant and racy, with sleek black currant, blackberry and black cherry puree flavors coursing through, pierced by a graphite spine and backed by tobacco, singed alder and freshly plowed humus notes. The long finish has a smoldering hint without sacrificing the purity of the fruit. Rock-solid. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2024 through 2040. - Wine Spectator
Deep colour. A refined classic. Fragrant, lifted dark-fruit nose with blackcurrant notes to the fore. Super palate, the tannins plentiful and firm but offering a velvety texture at the same time. Lots of freshness, even a saline edge. Builds to a long, dry, mouth-cleansing finish.-James Lawther MW, JancisRobinson
