Hide the tasting notes

85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Plum, redcurrant, milk chocolate, really charming and interesting, Smooth palate. Some coffee character on the finish. Very characterful, and more immediately appealing than their Le Plus cuvée.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2015-2025

Bright black damson fruit, very forward on the nose, less open on the palate. Lush and ripe with nice acidity and vanilla on the finish.

Score: 88 - 91 Albany Vintners

A very pretty wine for the vintage with a pretty center palate and richness. Full body and integrated with a long finish. A beauty.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Open, expressive dark fruit nose. Fresh and lively on the palate. Tannins fine. Not big but harmonious.

Score: 86 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2016-2020

Light, with a crunchy feel to the pomegranate and cherry pit notes. Savory and bay hints emerge on the finish.

Loads of cedar and clove notes from new oak, but the fruit is bright and bold too. Sieved but insistent mouth-coating tannin. Shame the finish is a bit brief.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2016-2022

Black cherry and violets on the nose then, pure and clean with high-toned black and blueberry fruit and minerals. Juicy fruit in the middle, ripe with nice structure and a lovely elegant fresh finish.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

Nicolas de Bailliencourt told me that for the second year running the Grand Vin is pure Merlot. It has a perfumed and much more floral bouquet compared to recent years. There is fine precision here, though it is not a powerful Gazin. The palate is medium-bodied and just a little pinched on the entry. The structure feels firm, lending it a mannered, conservative feel, whilst the finish is balanced with a truffle tinged finish. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 89 - 91 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Pretty red berry aroma. Full, round and juicy. Fresh. Firm and masculine in style.

Score: 89 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Shows a firm plum skin frame, with a core of cherry, bitter plum and blackberry fruit. Lightly singed anise notes appear on the finish.

Black cherry jam, vibrant and chewy on the palate. Full of vigour. Shame that the body and length are victim to the 2013 gentleness! Even so, a good, well-made wine. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2016-2023

A pretty fresh nose, then in the mouth light but juicy with cherries, brisk acidity and vanilla toast on the back end.

Score: 88 - 90 Albany Vintners

Clean and tangy with dried-berry and raspberry character. Medium body. Silky tannins. Gloria made the most of its grapes this year.

Score: 88 - 89 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

I tasted the Château Gloria three times and was never totally convinced that it will amount to much after bottling, which is a shame because the estate has turned round some outstanding wines in recent vintages. It has a rather herbaceous, undergrowth-scented bouquet that is missing some fruit concentration. The palate is pinched on the entry with high acidity and the finish is too abrupt. This is nowhere near the quality of the estate's superb wines in recent vintages. Tasted March 2014.

Score: 84 - 86 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Dense colour, good smoky cassis nose, depth and clarity of fruit, still green but good depth and class.

Score: 89 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2025

A plump, almost gutsy style, with dark plum and blackberry fruit, bolstered by ample roasted cedar and apple wood notes. Lacks range but shows solid muscle.

Score: 87 - 90 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac £340 £280 - £360 - 17 89-92 89-90 90-92 90
Hide the tasting notes

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot. Vibrant purple. Compact, tight nose, but superbly supple on the palate, sieved tannins, milk chocolate, just a little bit light on the finish. Very attractive and sensitively made, very powerful, very Pauillac. (17+)

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2033

Dark subdued nose of berries, blackberry leaf and cedar. Gentle and restrained with a creamy texture and a chewy black firm fruit finish.

Score: 89 - 92 Albany Vintners

A firm, fresh wine with currant, chalk and mineral character. Medium body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Fine texture to this.

Score: 89 - 90 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The Grand Puy Lacoste is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot picked at 31hl/ha from 30 September until 11 October, matured in 75% new oak. It has a fragrant red berry fruit on the nose: raspberry leaf and cranberry, undergrowth and a touch of tobacco. It is very classic G.P.L. style but dialled down from previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and well judged acidity, harmonious with cedar and tobacco on the finish. There is not the usual structure compared to recent vintages, although it is cohesive and for want of a better word...honest. And what more can you ask from a wine?

Score: 90 - 92 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Deep colour and finely expressed fruit, cassis with a little spice, very Cabernet, dense but lifted, good middle fruit, good future. (90+ Points)

Score: 90 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Racy and nicely put together, with plum, red currant and iron notes in lock step, while plum pit and savory details line the finish. A singed cedar hint supports the finish. Well done.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2013 Grand Puy Lacoste is terrific. Graphite, smoke, tobacco and licorice burst onto the palate, followed by layers of dark, inviting fruit. Supremely classy from start to finish, the 2013 impresses for its energy, balance and pure, mineral-driven cut. The 2013 is by no means a huge wine, but it is super-polished to the core. Tasted twice. (90-92+ Points)
