Wine Advocate-Parker :
Grand-Puy-Lacoste is the drinker's Pauillac. It is not an investment wine (having been largely forgotten by the trophy hunters and investors looking to make a quick buck), although certain vintages (1982 and 1990) have tripled in price. Grand-Puy-Lacoste, usually loaded with character and personality, has enjoyed three fine vintages in 1993-95, with each of these years under-priced for such quality. This dark ruby/purple-colored wine offers a fragrant weedy, cassis, and tobacco-scented nose as well as a sexy combination of rich cassis fruit and glycerin. Medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, excellent ripeness, and a luscious mouthfeel, this is a delicious, hedonistic style of Grand-Puy-Lacoste for drinking over the next 7-8 years.
