    Lacoste Borie, Pauillac, 2011
    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    Lacoste-Borie 2020 from Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a deep garnet-purple color. It gives notes of fresh blackcurrant, mulberries, and ripe plums, plus touches of lavender, cast-iron pan, and bay leaves. The medium-bodied palate has a seriously refreshing backbone, with chewy tannins and just enough fruit, finishing with an invigorating savoriness.

    The 2020 Lacoste-Borie, which comes in a new label, has an attractive nose with black fruit, pencil shavings and light minty aromas that remain in the background. Fine delineation, though not powerful. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins on the entry, a mixture of red and black fruit, hints of brine and cracked black pepper with an easygoing, seaweed-tinged finish that suggests this will just require a couple of years in bottle.

    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.
