Grand Puy Lacoste 2006

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

11 years

While not at the level of the phenomenal 2005, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has produced another classic wine with the creme de cassis fruit that I often find in both Mouton Rothschild and Pontet-Canet, yet both of those vineyards are closer to the Gironde River. This wine has a pure personality, with the aforementioned classic creme de cassis notes, medium to full body, beautiful density, purity, texture, and length. If anything, this recalls a hypothetical blend of their brilliant 1995 and 1996. Tannins are elevated, so patience will be required. This was Xavier Borie’s first vintage in his new state-of-the-art winemaking facility. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste is a producer of highly rated fine wines, located in the Pauillac region in Bordeaux, France. According to the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, the premier red wine Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste holds the status of Fifth Growth.

The Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste can be found in the town of Pauillac, spanning around 36 hectares in vineyards. Common to the region, the vineyards have a limestone base with a deep gravel top soil. The grape selection is roughly 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 20% Merlot and the remaining 5% Cabernet Franc.

On average, Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste produces around 12,000 cases of wine every year. It also shares part of the name with Grand Puy Ducasse, another winery on the same hill. “Grand Puy” is the name of the small gravelly hill on which (both) the estates are located. This prestigious wine producer has had several names throughout the years, due to the daughters of the owning families getting married; since the daughter married Francois Lacoste, it retains the name Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste.
