Winemaker Notes
This wine has an enticing, dark and very intense, ruby colour. The bouquet reveals aromas of ripe black fruit and cassis complemented by spicy notes with great freshness. The palate is precise and dense, evolving into charming and well rounded tannins with good length and structure. The overall impression is one of purity and elegance.

97 Points - James Suckling
This red shows lots of redcurrants and fresh flowers on the nose. It’s full-bodied with juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to resolve some of the tannins. Beautiful cabernet character, but already a joy to taste.

95 Points - Decanter
All the clarity and depth expected of GPL, with an added level of fragrance, elegance and purity. Simply wonderful in this vintage.

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
This wine is dark and brooding, a powerhouse of tannins. It is seriously structured and could be too extracted and bitter except for the superripe fruit that is cut by lively acidity.

93 Points -  Wine Spectator
A sleek, graphite-fueled version, with ample cassis and black cherry fruit racing along, picking up light tobacco, anise and bramble notes along the way. The fruit is vivid, presenting pleasant coiled up energy. Should age nicely. Best from 2020 through 2030.

92 Points -  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a much more approachable nose than usual, vibrant with red cherries, wild strawberry and cedar aromas, backed up with mineral-soaked blackberry fruit. This gathers momentum wonderfully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. The acidity is very well judged with purity and elegance on the finish, if not the structure or backbone commonly found is very top vintages. I've been a bit conservative with my score at the moment, but I am sure it will prove its worth with 3-5 more years in bottle, hence the plus sign. One to watch.
