Grand Puy Lacoste 2008

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

9 years

Unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with plums, red and black currants presented in an evolved style characterize this dark plum/garnet-colored effort. Medium-bodied, delicious and evolved, it is best consumed over the next 10-12 years. *** Not a blockbuster such as the 2005 or 2000, the 2008 Grand Puy Lacoste is an elegant, deep ruby/purple-tinged, pretty Pauillac offering plenty of red and black currant fruit interwoven with touches of spice box and tobacco leaf characteristics. Fresh acidity, medium body, and a pleasant, long finish with excellent depth as well as ripeness suggest it will be a delicate, finesse styled offering to enjoy over the next 10-15 years.

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.
