Winemaker's Notes:

Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2010 compound of a very high majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (83%) offers a deep red color. The bouquet reveals very ripe blackcurrant perfumes, slightly spiced revealing the beautiful maturity of the grapes. The attack on the palate grows louder and louder, suave then dense, it continues with a powerful well balanced tannic structure. Precise and complex coated with a beautiful freshness and a very long aromatic persistence gives much class to this great vintage. 2010 will be registered without any doubt in the beautiful story of the mythical years of our vineyard.

Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot

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.
