Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

Ranked as a 5th growth in the 1855 classification of the Left Bank, this is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc, and has a fascinating history dating back to the 15th century. The name Grand-Puy was known in the Middle Ages: Puy means “hillock of small height” in the local dialect, and the estate sits on an outcrop about 20 metres above sea level. The estate is situated in Pauillac and has had several names over the years. The present name came into effect in the late 19th century when a daughter of the estate married a Francois Lacoste. In 1932 it was bought by Raymond Dupin who was president of the Union of Médoc Classified Growths and a legendary figure in the Médoc wine world. He sold it in 1978 to Jean-Eugène Borie and it remains family owned, today run by third generation Francois-Xavier Borie assisted by his daughter Emeline. 90 hectares are under vine planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, on deep gravel beds over limestone. The average age of the vines is 28 years. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak, 50% new. The Grand-Puy-Lacoste style outperforms its classification, and is velvety textured and loaded with rich cassis fruit.
