The bouquet opens up with leather, coffee bean, cedar and graphite with a slight annotation of cassis in the background.
The palate is of medium density and transits very fast into a clear acidity without losing its harmonious core. Ripe and melting tannins.
Very long finish.
Points: 93-94 / 100

I am highly surprised about this bottle. My experience so far with 2000s Bordeaux is that the ones on the right bank aged better (so far) and show more hedonistic pleasure for the moment.
The GPL 2000 is a complete different wine:
While it won’t stun you with power, silkiness and pure juice, it will provide a very classic bordeaux experience:
The real charme of this wine comes in action when smell this dense, complex and deep bouquet. So pure, direct and honest.
The palate itself is a mentioned “super classic with a little+ of warmth”. Highly elegant and with strong minerality, it will show you what a classic Bordeaux is without any compromise.
The finish is excellent and very long.
This wine should be drunk with brain. Therefore you should think carefully with whom you want to share these bottles (if at all), because identifying it as “expensive and good” is easy, but experiencing it in its unrestricted beauty is not possible for everyone.
