2019 CHATEAU GRAND-PUY-LACOSTE

PAUILLAC

"Classy and full of breeding - quintessential Pauillac."

95-97 POINTS - NEAL MARTIN, VINOUS

Today sees the release of one of Pauillac’s favoured estates, the over-achieving Fifth Growth - Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The wine is released representing a 20% reduction on the 2018 release price.

The Pauillac appellation has no doubt produced some of the best wines of 2019, thanks to the warmth of the vintage off-set by the mineral freshness, synonymous with the Pauillac gravel terroir and its magical union with Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blends. 

Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste always sits on the elegant side of Pauillac and has produced a wine packed with refined tannins, full of energy and mineral freshnessin 2019. It is a beautifully balanced wine and comes highly recommended.

"The 2019 Grand Puy Lacoste is deep purple in colour. Initially the bouquet is tight and so I left my sample for 15-20 minutes to open. It rewards patience with a beguiling mélange of pure blackberry, raspberry, crushed violet and pencil shavings, very focused and mineral-driven. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiseled tannins. Compared to the robust, tannic GPL's of old, this is much more lithe and approachable, yet it still bears the DNA of this Pauillac estate. It might not possess the flair of other 2019 Left Banks, but that it is not what I seek from this estate. Classy and full of breeding - quintessential Pauillac."
