Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2007

Again this is totally drinkable, with graphite notes and layers of juicy damson and black cherry fruits playing off the silky tannins. This perhaps gives a clue as to why the Bordelais were stubborn on their pricing of the 2007s. Genuinely good drinking today, and should be enjoyed.
