Tasting Notes:

Wine Advocate

The first vintage made under the expert management of Jean-Eugene Borie and his son, Xavier, the 1978 remains a classic Pauillac with fine cellaring potential. Dark ruby garnet with a ripe, intense bouquet of cassis, fruit, cedar, and vanillin oakiness, this wine is rich, with excellent body and the tannins quickly melting away. (RP)  (12/1997)


The 1978 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a ferrous bouquet, fully mature of course, with fresh mint, potpourri and lavender notes. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity and slightly dry tannins. It is pretty meaty with dried blood and black pepper, attenuating just a little on the finish. (NM)  (12/2022)
