The 2016 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a fabulous blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot. It starts off with inviting aromas of red currants, florals, tobacco, dusty graphite and hints of licorice all developing in the glass. On the palate this is medium-bodied and beautifully structured with velvety, yet supportive tannins. It continues to impress as it displays a wonderful elegance and precision through the long finish. This is a classic Grand Puy-Lacoste which will need significant time to develop and soften, however it certainly looks to have an extremely bright future ahead.
