The 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste is even better than such recent vintages as 2005 and 2009...Powerful, full-bodied flavors have shed a lot of tannin, but they remain relatively youthful. This is a young adolescent, broadly flavored Pauillac with an enticing texture as well as abundant richness and fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but promises to hit its peak in five years, and last for two decades. Robert Parker

Graphite, tobacco, bruised apple. Fruit might have come out had we not drunk it so quickly!

If fruits can be fluffy, they are in this wine. Blackberries, dark cherries, dry plum, creamed raspberries, some strawberries, tea, coffee, underbrush, dry brown soil, dry pebbles, rich black soil, dry florals, grilled meats, bright acidity and long juicy dark fruit finish. Of the wines so far, this one is the most approachable.

Really beautiful bottle. At a perfect place with balance between fruit (if anything "fruit forward" for a 2000 Bordeaux, secondary elements and resolved tannins. At well under $100 in a restaurant, hard to beat!
