A fabulous GPL. Perhaps better than the legendary 1982? It shows laser-guide precision on the palate with aromas of currants, cedar, mint, flowers and chocolate. Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes.
...an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar... ...palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL... ...hint of spice on the aftertaste—the show ain't over yet... ...remains a magnificent Pauillac to cherish long-term... (Jan. 2016)
Has subtle blackberry, licorice and currant on the nose, with hints of mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a very pretty texture. Refined and balanced. A beautiful wine that's hard to keep your hands off now.
Aromas of plum and musky brown spices. Big, sweet and plump on the palate, with full, mellow flavors of red berries, tobacco and mocha.
...Elegant and rounded. A nice whole and quite approachable - long and fine tannins though the wine is well structured for the longer term.
