Description

An elegant and fresh Pauillac wine

The estate

Located in the heart of the Pauillac appellation on the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste took its current form in 1855, although it was built in the 16th century. The wine estate was greatly influenced during its ownership by Raymond Dupin from 1930 to 1978. Dupin ceded the property to the Borie family, who have carried out numerous renovations since then. Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is today one of the most representative estates of the Pauillac appellation.

The vineyard

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2021 is a Pauillac wine that stems from a 90-hectare vineyard, of which 60 are planted in a single block. The vines are 38 years old on average and are planted on deep gravelly outcroppings.

The vintage

A mild, wet winter preceded a dry spring, alternating between a warm month of March and a particularly cold month of April. Thanks to its location near the estuary, the vineyard was protected from frost. The heavy rainfall in June gave way to a cool, wet month of July and a dry but cool August. These conditions enabled the vineyard to develop gradually and evenly until the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

The manual harvest is followed by a double sorting on a vibrating table before and after destemming. Vatting for around 3 weeks. Aged in French oak barrels (75% new).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (85%)

Merlot (15%).

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2021: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful garnet red colour.

Nose

The nose combines fruity (red fruit) and floral (violets) fragrances with subtle notes of spices and vanilla.

Palate

The attack is precise, ample and fresh. Floral and fruity aromas combine harmoniously with fine and smooth tannins. A fresh and elegant palate stretches to a pure and persistent finish.
