Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste (The Ledbury, London): Glorious copper/mahogany colour. Sweet, gentle nose, but complex showing creme brulee, figs. Medium bodied on the palate, no obvious botrytis, sweet on initial entry with figs, caramel and a note of custard, perhaps falling away a little on the finish but lengthened and sweetened when eaten with (bonus) fresh fig and ice cream dessert. Lovely. ****1/2
