2015 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac (11/10/2019)
-- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over approx. 3 hours --

Very approachable --- more approachable than I'd prefer for a GPL of this age. Red-fruited, mostly, with medium-low acidity. Not tannic. Clean. Sweet, red fruit. Not overblown. Although I do consider this low-level excellent (gut impression score: 90 - 92), this bottle helped me realize I prefer super-structured GPLs (e.g. '05; '10). The '14 shows more Pauillac typicity than does this '15. Just as with the '14, I'd like to see this put on some weight with age. Doesn't present much complexity today; best to Hold.
