"Tasted at the chateau. The Grand Puy Lacoste 2009 has a precise nose, very minerally, subtle floral notes, wild hedgerow and crushed stone. The fruit has ebbed away at the moment but it will come back. The palate is just wonderful, very precise with wonderful mineralite. Very fresh and tense, wonderful clarity towards the finish. This is a slightly more feminine Grand Puy Lacoste and merit a higher score further down the line."
