This estate has a history going back to the 16th century and passed through several families. The name 'Grand Puy' refers to the raised ground apon which the estate stands and 'Lacoste' is the name of a family who owned it during the 19th century and who built the Chateau at around the time it became a 5th growth in the 1855 classification.The Borie family,who already owned Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou in Saint-Julien,bought it in 1978 and began a long programme of improvements and renovations.There are 90 hectares in total but only 50 are under vine. There is a grand wine plus a second wine called 'Lacoste-Borie' that made its debut in 1982

  • Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2006


    The '06 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a textbook (for me) Pauillac - slightly stern, but showing - surprisingly - only mild bricking, looking very dark in the glass. The nose is of fermented wild berry, tobacco and a hint of some kind of baking spice. Entry is smooth, quite dense with red fruit (blackberry), with soft oak on the finish. Tannins dissip...

  • There is a lot of information on this vintage available at the usual download locations - particularly if you have accounts (I avoid this in most cases as I hate advertising).  Having said this, i can say that I have not had a poor example from this Bordeaux vintage - which is either merely serendipitous or an excellent indicator of the quality ...

  • The amount of product available from this vintage in the Gironde Basin is amazing and needs further (in depth) discussion.  I will await an inaugural entry by other members, but will add information by Sunday, October 13th if nothing is added.  In my lifetime, only the 2005, 2009 and 2010 merit any real comparison to this vintage.

  • Anyone go to the 2019 version? They tasted the 2016 vintage.I got there really late so had to blast through at the rate of maybe one a minute. Maybe a little longer but not much as I only had an hour to taste as much as I could.So no notes, and I'm not big on those anyway, but a few observations that I really wish I had more time to explore. My ... Read More

  • Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2013


    The 2013 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is ready to roll now; the nose is of blackberry, vanilla and smoke (from oak barrels), and the entry is has the slightest pucker and oak flavour, but is smooth and perfect for red meat dishes, with a bit of lead pencil on the palet. Finish is quite long for the vintage. Delicious, but drink now through 2018. 89-90. Read More

  • I had the "95 the other night with a friend of mine who bought it just for us, the next time we got together to talk. WOW!!!! So silky and seductive, the wine was at it's apex. However, by the 90th minute the last of the wine in my glass was fading fast. If you have one, drink it now, and enjoy. If you hold onto it, forever hold your peace/p...

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2011


    Stemmy, herbal, and with classic black currant fruit on the nose this showily nicely nuanced and powerful yet with a sense of restraint, showing off late arriving coffee cream toasty oak spice aromas. Classic austere, restrained Bordeaux in the mouth, with excellent balance, this has good depth, though perhaps just a touch soft, there are nice l... Read More
