Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste
Full-bodied, tight and polished. Gorgeous finish
- Bordeaux, France
The history of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fascinating in many ways. It is a family going back to the 16th century. The name Grand-Puy, already mentioned in the Middle Ages, comes from the ancient term "puy" which means "hillock, small height". True to its name, the vineyard sits on the ground with Medoc's first growths. From Since the 16th century the property remained attached to a single family from generation to generation, before connecting with another family in 1978-the Borie.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is scented of warm blackcurrants, black cherries, spice box, florals and chocolate box with a menthol hint. Full-bodied, the palate is rich, plush and generous, finishing long and perfumed." 92-94+/100, Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate
"This is a deep and beautiful 2018 with blackcurrant, wet-earth and fresh-tobacco undertones. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Gorgeous finish. The tannins kick in at the end. Fine texture." 94-95/100, James Suckling
"A wine of precision, energy and nuance, the 2018 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fabulous. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berry fruit grace this exquisite, nuanced Pauillac. Medium in body, understated and classy, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the highlights of the year. In a word: impeccable. The 2018 is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot from yields of 40 hectoliters per hectare." 93-96/100, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
"This captures the style of the vintage to a T, with vividly ripe cassis and plum fruit, carried by solidly built but fine-grained structure. Lots of graphite and tobacco accents hang in the background for now. A firmly grounded wine." 95-98/100 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
