Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé 2014 Bordeaux Red Wine, $59.49-$69.99, 95 points, poured core black grading purple/red toward the transparent wine ring and light sheeting on the glass bowl.
Earthy black fruit, red currants, and hints of coffee liqueur were good.
Full-bodied with bright acidity and gripping fine tannins carried succulent nuanced flavors of anise, plums, figs, and coffee with more pronounced truffle, pomegranate, and black currant.
Finished long on escalating drying tannins, the trailing palate, violets, white pepper notes, and a spot-on 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with our saucy Italian cuisine.
Just a scoring note: two other visiting wine tasters score this Bordeaux 93 and 94 points.
