2003 Château Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac, Bordeaux, France

Intense ruby red color. On the nose, it offers a
complex combination of blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry, with added hints of spices.
On the palate, its richness and structure is harmoniously full-bodied and the tannins are well-balanced. Splendid length of the finish.



75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Aged in french oak barrels (70% new) for 16-18 months offering subtle oak notes and softening the tannins. The vines were 38 years old at harvest and planted on very deep course gravel. This vintage has evolved wonderfully with aging, developing complex and pleasing flavors.


The history of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fascinating in many ways. It is a family saga going back to the 16th century.

The name Grand-Puy, already mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages, comes from the ancient term "puy” which means "hillock, small height”. True to its name, the vineyard sits on outcrops with a terroir similar to that of the Médoc's first growths. From Since the 16th century the property remained attached to a single family from generation to generation, in a direct line through marriage until 1920, before connecting with another family in 1978—the Borie.
