Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2010 compound of a very high majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (83%) offers a deep red color. The bouquet reveals very ripe blackcurrant perfumes, slightly spiced revealing the beautiful maturity of the grapes. The attack on the palate grows louder and louder, suave then dense, it continues with a powerful well balanced tannic structure. The unit: precise and complex coated with a beautiful freshness and a very long aromatic persistence gives much class to this great vintage. 2010 will be registered without any doubt in the beautiful story of the mythical years of our vineyard.

Wine JournalA blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, the Grand Puy Lacoste '10 has 13.6% alcohol with a total acidity of around 3.5gms/L. It has a very complex bouquet that I leave over 5 minutes to open, developing ripe blackberry, cassis, oyster shell and a faint tang of Japanese nori (seaweed.) Very good complexity. The palate is beautifully balanced, this GPL revelling in this vintage that countenances the Cabernet Sauvignon so much. Very refined, powerful, beautifully focused with an unerring sense of symmetry. This is a magnificent Pauillac, Bravo Xavier!!! Drink 2020- Tasted March 2011.

Wine EnthusiastVery densely tannic wine, the dry character of the wine a major element. This dryness gives the wine power, without the fruit at this stage. It does have the weight for the future.

Wine SpectatorThis is dense but silky around the edges, with crushed plum and black currant fruit lined with roasted vanilla bean, tobacco and loam notes. Everything hangs solidly through the finish, lined with finely beaded acidity and leaving an echo of singed anise. Best from 2015 through 2028.
