Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Owned by the Borie family, this 45-hectare property has a reputation for producing excellent, full-bodied Pauillac.

Tasting Notes

The colour and bouquet are textbook Pauillac - powerful, dark and robust, with an intensity and focus that puts this above it's 5th growth status. Brimming with stewed cassis, a touch of black olive, ironstone and gun smoke, with cedar and forest floor characters all in the mix. Succulent, yet with balancing freshness and a gentleness that is almost beguiling. The tannins develop later in the glass, hinting at long life. This could be a sleeper of the vintage.

Vinification

Vinification is carried out in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in 75% new oak barrels for 18 months
