Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2002

The 2002 Grand Puy Lacoste from Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste offers finesse over flamboyance. Despite the challenging year for winemaking in 2002, this wine retains its cassis, earth, tobacco, and forest floor notes and ends with a driver cassis and cranberry finish. It has a classic, old Pauillac bouquet enhanced by wooded blackberry, sous-bois, and pencil box notes and is balanced with mild tannins and dark fruit decadence. This wine is recommended only for those who appreciate aged wines and their nuances.

It is worth noting that Parker awarded the 2002 Grand Puy Lacoste RP92 in one of the Farr Premier Tastings 14 years ago, which is still a testament to its remarkable initial quality. While the rating was later adjusted to RP86 in 2010, the wine still stands as a testament to its unique character and Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste's winemaking expertise.

This wine is an excellent contrast to modern flavours, and that, in our view, is a fair comment since it is a substantial and nuanced wine perfect for connoisseurs of aged claret. It is also a cornerstone of discerning collections and a testament to Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste's winemaking prowess.

We just thought if you are younger enough, try this wine to form at least some partial view of 'claret'.
