    October 13, 2019 - We've had a few bottles of this now from a case we bought last year. One bottle was a little flat, but all the rest have been just great.

    This one's in the great category.

    Lightly bricked color, thick and turbid.

    On nose, more tertiary flavors peeking through than prior bottles. Plums, anise,, touch of leather, spice.

    On palate, tannins are fully integrated, and the acid supports a lovely, clear profile reminiscent of the nose but perhaps a little more fruit forward.

    Ah, so nice to have a good bottle. Aged Bordeaux is so good.

    September 18, 2019 - Luis "Bring a good bottle" - Pinot and Bordeaux (Kenwood): 1 hour decant. The secondary flavors are just starting to peak out of this wine. There is definitely interest, but I'd prefer to try this in 5-10 years.

    September 12, 2019 - Mixed WTDS at The Kenwood (The Kenwood, Mpls, MN): Very dark red/purple. One hour double decant and a little slow ox time after. Drank a small glass over an hour. Full bodied, lots of dark fruits, juicy, horse barn, truffles, wood and touch of heat, cassis and blackberry and a little blood orange. This took a while to come around, but it has a lot promise. Needs a good dose of air or a few more years to really show its stuff.

    September 7, 2019 - The 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste is absolutely singing now, and for my tastes, seems to be approaching full maturity. An outgoing bouquet, offering up complex aromas of black truffle, cassis, crushed stones, forest floor; hints of campfire and cigar box. Medium bodied, with great depth, a velvety texture, impressive grip, and a long finish. If every $300+ wine I opened showed this well, I would be beyond happy!

    September 2, 2019 - Excellent GPL from very good vintage. Color dark red, slight sediment, drank without decant, completely mature. Nose of dark fruits, cassis, plums, roses, tobacco, graphite, pepper. Palate is medium body, well integrated tannins, very good balanced acidity lifting up the wine with freshness, very smooth, velvety. Cherries, currants, tobacco, pepper on the palate, with medium 30 seconds finish. At the peak, drink now or hold 5-7 more years.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Grand Puy Lacoste) Tight out of the gates but with some coaxing a gorgeous nose of tar, blackberry, tobacco, currants, black cherries mineral and a touch of toasty oak. Very aromatically precise . . . Rich and decadent in the mouth with superconcentrated fruit . . . Firms up on the finish but has astounding length and brilliant delineation . . . Wow!!
