Description

Tasted blind. Rather elegant. Not flashy and not that concentrated but beautifully balanced. Already showing its charms even though the medium body and medium charge of tannins should preserve it for a good long life. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com (17.5)

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.
