Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis

    He was all smiles while meeting him to taste through his 2007s. Besides providing inexpensive andentertaining fun in the form of wine labels for the Goedhuis team at the end of our long day, he also produced some very good wines. Similar in flavour profile to the 2007 Haut Batailley, Grand Puy Lacoste was even more rich, more dense and more structured. It offered notes of violets, black currant and roasted meat. A bit more pensive as well. François-Xavier has been producing really topnotch wines in the past few years, and this is yet another one to be proud of. Drink 2011-2022

    Neal Martin, June 2017,
    Score: 91

    Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a straight-down-the-line, no frills, pencil lead-infused, black-fruited bouquet with wonderful definition and commendable intensity for the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with a surprisingly lithe and sensual opening, more red fruit than other vintages of Grand Puy Lacoste with satisfying precision and mineralité on the finish. This is excellent. Tasted February 2017. 91/100. Drink 2018 - 2032

    Score: 88-91

    Plenty of subtle cassis and floral aromas follow through to a medium-to-full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Pretty wine.

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Grand Puy Lacoste sits on top of one of the steepest slopes in Pauillac, a whole 16 metres above the main flatlands! Hardly Himalayan, but the extra 16 metres of pebble-enriched soil results inparticularly excellent drainage. François-Xavier Borie is at the helm of this very impressive château which was purchased in 1978 from Monsieur Dupin.

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
