Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Lacoste Borie, Pauillac, 2011

Emeline Borie describes 2020 as a more “classical in style” than 2018 and 2019. There isn’t any of the flamboyance that we’ve witnessed in the preceding two vintages. This is back to classical lines, structure and refinement. The second label, Lacoste Borie is as charming as ever with plenty of beautifully pitched fragrant sweet red berries. Classic, correct, enough weight; this promises to be an excellent early drinker.

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.
