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.

Dark ruby-red. Ripe, expressive nose combines cassis, roasted plum and coconut. Supple, very concentrated and large-scaled; actually rather backward today even if the terrific ripeness is clear to see. Quintessential firm Pauillac backbone is covered by flesh. Will rely more on its tongue-dusting tannins than its acidity to age in bottle. This wine firmed up noticeably during its second year in barrel.

Nose of cherry, plum, cassis and coffee. Elegant wine. Ripely sweet and spicy on the palate with excellent finish. Still with some tannins but ripe. Very delicious now!
A great value

you can still find this outstanding Pauillac for a pretty good price. Highly recommended as it is drinking beautifully right now at 10 years of age.
Needs a bit more time

Great stuff. More St Julien in style than Pauillac. Started off with slightly restrained nose and flavors of roasted nuts, cassis and toast with hints of oak. The acidity was low throughout but moreso after about 20 minutes in the glass. We couldn't wait for this to fully develop because we were 4 people on one bottle and started drinking as soon as the bottle was uncorked. I'll bet if we decanted and waited an hour we would have liked it even better. After about half hour in the glass it really opened up and the nose became much less restrained and the wine became more lush and fruit dominated. Overall a terrific wine but I would wait another year or two to open another.
