    (Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste (Pauillac)) Decanted for two hours this still showed pretty mean and tight; it was at least four hours before this really seemed approachable and open for business. With time the nose does reveal some delightful fruit scents, dense red cherry fruit and red plum, mixed with notes of liquorice, smoke and stone. It is bright and characterful, and although it has richness and generosity it certainly doesn't have the fat corpulence that you might expect from this vintage. The same on the palate, which has substance but also piles of bitter grip and sappy-juicy acidity. It is full on but not soft or ill-defined, and although it doesn't seem very typical of chateau or commune I think this is more youth than the vintage. Good potential here for the cellar.
