Excellent dark color accompanying plummy, floral and lead pencil aromas and flavors. Muscular for the vintage, with ripe tannins and peppery, fruity tones. Drinkable now.--The Bordeaux 50.

About This Producer


Located on the left bank of the Gironde River, a few miles from the town of Pauillac, Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste (also known as Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste-Saint-Guirons) is a Fifth Growth classified Bordeaux wine that continually outperforms its classification. The vineyards cover over 90 hectares growing primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Grand-Puy-Lacoste's wines are powerful, with distinct tannic structure, and rich blackcurrant and cassis notes which are the hallmarks of a good Pauillac. Cabernet Sauvignon is king at Grand-Puy-Lacoste, as the deep gravel topsoil with a limestone base is ideally suited for growing the grape. Cabernet is also what gives the wines their wonderful structure, and aging potential. The estate's second wine is called Lacoste-Borie.
