Description

NOTE: Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2018 is due to arrive in 2021.

Having changed names a few times in the past Grand-Puy-Lacoste shares a hill with the similarly named Grand-Puy-Ducasse. Like many terroirs in Bordeaux, these two estates used to be owned by the same family. Today they have 36 hectares in the ground consisting of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wines here are quite old fashioned, so structure, acidity and elegance are the order of the day. They really want these wines to be cellared and enjoyed in the mid to long term.

Pauillac

The powerhouse of the Left Bank. It contains three of the five first growth wines in the Medoc and a wealth of other great Chateaux beyond that. It combines the cool charm of St-Julien to the South and the rugged richness of St-Estephe to the North and makes the wines that are often thought of as classic Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon reigns here. Expect wines that are built to last 40 years in a great vintage.

2018

Quality Red Bordeaux in 2018 will be deeply coloured, aromatically complex, and opulent in the mouth. While it sounds like they will be ready to go from day one, most experts are predicting this is a vintage for long-term cellaring. Think 30 years or more!  It wasn’t the best start to the vintage so quality is not uniform. Look for Northern Medoc, Margaux, Pomerol and Saint-Emilion.
