Ch. Grand Puy Lacoste (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted at The Ledbury at the Grand Puy Lacoste dinner. This bottle is much more unevolved and closed than others that I have tried. It has very good intensity on the nose with blackberry, iodine, cassis and a touch of violets that must have been picked down in Margaux. The palate has a real sappy texture matched with good acidity, but it is very backward and sultry towards the fiish. Bold, dense and introspective, leave this for another 4- years. Tasted September 2011.
