TN: 2001 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac)

2001 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac (3/25/2007)Medium garnet color. Lead pencil and dried red fruits on the nose. A bit refined on the palate. Not a big wine, but no slouch. Decent mouthfeel with some currant, tar, and leather. There is the usual earthinees present as well. The acid level seems a bit high today telling me it's a food wine. The tannins are undelying. This is my last bottle and I am on the fence either missing more in my cellar or happy they are gone (all 8). I am leaning toward the latter.88/100$25. (88 pts.)
