Pretty good juice. Very young in character but still very enjoyable. Lots of black pepper, currant, anise and cedar. Would be even better with snag of salty chips!

Great with some Snake River Wagyu Gold label New York Strip
According to some website the following information is helpful
Located on a small hill above the village of Bages in Bordeaux, lies the Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The estate was classified as a fifth-growth in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc and its Cabernet Sauvignon-based grand vin is known for its velvety opulence. The winery makes a second label called Lacoste-Borie that is made from lots of its declassified fruit which is mostly Merlot. The soils are a classic mix of gravel of differing depths, mixed with sand and some clay, and allow excellent, much-needed drainage for the vines. After centuries of evolving ownership following the 1855 Classification of the Medoc, the estate landed in the hands of François-Xavier Borie who has guided the estates fortunes elegantly and successfully since 1978.

We had the 2009 Vintage on 12/5-6/21. The bouquet has floral notes and those of minerals and currants. The palate changes over two hours of air time. Black cherry, plum and oak on the palate. A medium bodied wine with fine tannins. Old World wine.

‘09 GPL for a celebratory occasion. Spectacular bottle decanted a couple of hours before serving. The color is deep ruby. The nose is intense with cassis, blackberry and leather. The pallet is full with flavors of tobacco, oak, cedar, smoke and overlaying dark fruit. It is seductively bold, obsessively tannic and dry, and quite acidic. Very seductive wine.

PS Paired with NY Strip Steak. May be the perfect mach!

Graphite, black currant, dark fruit, some tobacco. Dense, deep, fleshy yet with some freshness and the nice structure and tannins are well balanced and with a great texture feel to them. Very good. Length is medium though. 90-91

Mine crayon, cassis, fruits noirs, tabac. Belle densité et texture qui va avec une certaine fraîcheur et des tannins soyeux et agréables. Très bon malgré une longueur moyenne.
