Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep

ABV:
13.5 %

Notes

62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. This is one of the wines of the vintage. The 2009 was monumental, but this is something else. Deeper than Haut Batailley in every sense... This is a handsome Pauillac that punches well above its 5th growth status. Brooding and complex bouquet with notes of liquid minerals, crème de mûre and cherry stones. The palate is effortlessly suave - this is such a seductive GPL. There are impressive levels of concentration and silky smooth, fine-textured tannins; refined with tremendous length of flavour. This oozes class.

Notes
The 2010 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is medium to deep garnet in color. It storms out of the glass with notions of creme de cassis, plum pudding, and mocha, plus suggestions of sandalwood and unsmoked cigars. The medium-bodied palate has a rock-solid structure of chewy tannins and plenty of freshness to support the muscular, evolved fruit, finishing on a mineral note.

Château Grand Puy Lacoste

Château Grand Puy Lacoste

A very old Chateau - it's first mention in official documents appears at the beginning of the XVIth century - this estate extends over 225 acres in a single plot of land to the south of Pauillac - which is where the original name "Grand-Puy" came from. Mr Lacoste added his name to the Château when he bought the property and kept it until the epidemic of phylloxera at the end of the XIXth century. GPL's reputation in the wine world will be down in part to Mr. Raymond Dupin, a legendary figure in the Medoc, who was proprietor until 1978 when he sold the estate to M. Borie.

Nowadays, François-Xavier Borie is managing things. He renewed the cellars of the Château just before producing the great vintage of 1982. The vinification and ageing of Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is conducted with the same technique and attention to detail, as those of the other estates managed by Borie - such as Château Haut-Batailley.
