2019 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a compelling buy in any vintage, but a must in 2019.  Neal Martin scores it 95-97 points, compared with 93-95 points for the 2018.  The 2019 benefits from the complex aromatics and fruit purity of the vintage, adding elegance to GPL's usual Pauillac power.  At just £540 per dozen bottles in bond compared to the release price of £672 in 2018, this is the definition of value.

Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.

Producer Profile

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a Cinquième Cru Classé in Pauillac.  The name Grand-Puy ('puy') comes from the Latin podium, or hill, describing this vineyard’s privileged location overlooking Pauillac. Included in the 1855 classification, Grand-Puy-Lacoste previously belonged to a family who contributed several members to the Bordeaux parliament. They fell in love with the magnificent gravel terroir and were responsible for establishing the wine’s reputation. They were followed by several other families: the Lacostes (who gave the estate its definitive name), the Saint-Guirons, and the Saint-Legiers.

From 1930 to 1978 the château was owned by Raymond Dupin. Shortly before his death, he sold Grand-Puy-Lacoste to the Borie family.  François-Xavier Borie, the present owner, has made major investments and constantly improved the quality of Grand-Puy-Lacoste in order to reflect all the finesse of its great Pauillac terroir.  The 90-hectare estate is planted at a density of 10,000 vine per hectare, to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with vines averaging 38 years of age.  The wine is aged in 75% new oak barrels.
