    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Lacoste Borie, Pauillac, 2011
    Maturity:
    Keep
    ABV:
    13.5%
    87/100
    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    Juicy but restrained slate-textured tannins holding together blackcurrant and black cherry fruits. This has high acidities that make things are a little abrupt on the finish but this has a ton of Pauillac character, 40hl/h yield (35hl/h yield after selection).

    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    The 2021 Lacoste-Borie is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc, harvested from 24 September to 8 October, with yields of 40 hl/ha. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers subtle notes of cranberries, redcurrants, and plums with suggestions of dried herbs and tobacco. Light-bodied, the palate is slightly lean and chewy, with simple red fruit flavors and a short, savory finish.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2021 Lacoste-Borie has an attractive, earthy nose with touches of warm gravel infusing the black fruit, lighter compared to recent vintages, but clean and fresh. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly tangy entry and a little more boldness and fruit concentration than the nose suggests, a liberal splash of black pepper on the finish. This is maybe an earlier-drinking Lacoste-Borie, but it will age nicely over 12 to 15 years.

    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.
