Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

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

Tasting Notes

This is a very well defined, classic claret and is once again a château to follow, as it always gives some good value even at today’s heady prices. A green pepper bouquet with overtones of cedar and tobacco. The palate is tight and well defined, with concentrated cassis fruit and finely poised tannins. A wine of great finesse.

Food Matches

Château Grand Puy Lacoste is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Château Grand Puy Lacoste is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.

Vinification

Aged in 75% new oak.
