Tasting notes:
'The 2014 Grand-Puy Lacoste has a bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry, mint and graphite, well defined and focused. It does not have to try too hard to give so much pleasure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very crisp acidity, beautifully proportioned with a veneer of top quality new oak that will need three or four years to be fully subsumed. But the purity and elegance of this Pauillac cannot be denied – a quite brilliant contribution to the 2014 vintage. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 95/100

'A sleek, graphite-fueled version, with ample cassis and black cherry fruit racing along, picking up light tobacco, anise and bramble notes along the way. The fruit is vivid, presenting pleasant coiled-up energy. Should age nicely. Best from 2020 through 2030.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100

'Tasted blind. Crimson. Well composed and confident – well-integrated. Lots of cassis here. Lifted finish and not too heavy though there is certainly depth here. Polished and racy. Lots of thought seems to have gone into this savoury wine, with acidity just the right side of too much.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

About Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste:
Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the oldest in the Médoc with its history dated back to the 16th century. From the 16th century until 1920, the property remained in the same family, and in 1978 was passed on to the Borie family. Since then, major renovations have been done on the property and the focus has been placed on the quality of the wines, rather than quantity. The 55-hectare vineyard is planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with the average age of the vines at 38 years.
