About Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste
Despite being classified in 1855 as a Fifth growth, Grand Puy Lacoste consistently outperforms its rank, due largely to the Cabernet which provides a solid structure to the wine. Francois Xavier Borie, who inherited the estate from his father, currently oversees the production of 12,000 cases annually.
88-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
Ruby-purple. Enticing aromas of strawberry, white pepper and minerals. Then bright and fresh in the mouth, with lively red berry, aromatic spices and herbal flavors nicely lifted at the back by vibrant acidity. The finish is bright, smooth and perfumed but reveals a trace of heat.
