Winemaker's Notes:

This wine presents an intense ruby red color. On the nose, it is very tempting, powerful with blackcurrant aromas, notes of cherry jam, black fruits raised of licorice and spices, the all combined with the freshness of the ripe grapes. In the mouth, we discover a wine with a race shape with strong notes of spices and black fruits and with a very long length. The wine is perfectly ripe with full-bodied tannins but voluptuous and with a great balance. This wine offers the beautiful expression of the terroir of this very typical Pauillac wine.

About Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste:

The history of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fascinating in many ways. It is a family saga going back to the 16th century. The name Grand-Puy, already mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages, comes from the ancient term "puy" which means "hillock, small height". True to its name, the vineyard sits on outcrops with a terroir similar to that of the M├ędoc's first growths. Since the 16th century the property was passed down from generation to generation, until the current family, the Borie's, bought the property in the 1920s.
