    May 5, 2019 - More mature than expected. Lovely aromatics with a bit of green mixed in with tobacco and cedar notes. Dark blue/black fruit moving towards tertiary/savory notes. Cedar notes throughout. Flint notes comes out on nose and finish. Really nice foursquare Paulliac. Similar to ‘96 but maybe not as tannic and long lived. Drink or hold.

    April 19, 2019 - In a perfect drinking window. Phantastic nose, great fruit and expression later on.

    April 17, 2019 - The fill was into the neck and the cork was sound; popped, poured and consumed over the course of dinner. Dark purple garnet core, turning to garnet at the rim; no amber. Notes of cedary cassis, cigar box, dried plums; hints of briar patch and black truffle. Medium bodied, with a velvety texture, good concentration and depth, beautiful balance, and a long and well delineated finish. My dining companions enjoyed the 2000 GPL as much as I did!

    April 8, 2019 - honestly I expected more given GPL is reputed to really step it up in good LB vintages (eg 1990, 1996,2000,2005..). By any stretch this will never be a "great" BDX even with some more improvement. The colour is still rich ruby, nice nose of tobacco and dark fruits. On palate well balanced black fruit, tea and tobacco but for me lacking an X factor and slightly sour finish.

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!!
