Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste

While this chateau has existed since 1737, it didn't get its current name until the 19th century, when it was acquired through marriage by the Lacoste family. The building in its present form was constructed by Pierre-Fredéric Lacoste in 1855, the same year it was designated a fifth growth in the 1855 Classification, but when the family eventually sold it in the 1930s it fell into a state of disrepair. Its fortunes changed in 1978 when its bachelor owner, Raymon Dupin, decided he wanted to sell the château to the Borie family because they made such lovely wine at Ducru-Beaucaillou and Haut-Batailley.

Grand-Puy-Lacoste's 90 hectares of vines (Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 25%) are in one block surrounding the chateau and lie on deep gravel beds over limestone. The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and the wine is then matured in oak barriques (50% new) for 18 months.Grand-Puy-Lacoste combines marvellous cigar box perfume with rich blackcurrant and cassis fruit and velvety power which is the epitome of top class Pauillac at its very best.
