Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste is one of the oldest vineyard properties in the Medoc, the heartland of the finest Chateaux in Bordeaux. Handed from generation to generation since the sixteenth-century, this is a property that has seen it all. Under the control and guidance of the Borie family since the 1970s, the Chateau has had extensive renovation and a constant improvement in quality. Now widely considered to have outgrown its 5th growth classification, it sits on similar terroir to the other great Classed growths of Pauillac. 92 Points Robert Parker: "The 2008 has a lovely, lifted bouquet of blackberry, blood orange, crushed stone, cedar and tar. It is much more vigorous than the previous bottle. The palate is medium-bodied is very supple on the entry with crisp acidity. Smooth and harmonious, the oak needing time to subsume into the fabric of the wine. The finish is fresh, vibrant, nicely poised with good grip and a fine, supple raspberry and briary."
