A Pauillac wine, fresh and aromatic

The estate

Located in the heart of the Pauillhac appellation, on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste took on its current structure in 1855, though it was first built in the 16th century. The wine estate was owned by Raymond Dupin between 1930 and 1978, followed by the Borie family, which has carried out a considerable amount of renovations since. Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is today a classic in the Pauillac appellation.

The vineyard

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a Pauillac wine from a vineyard of 90 hectares, of which 58 belong to a single piece of land. The vines, on average 38 years old, are planted on deep gravel hilltops.

The vintage

2015 was a year blessed by ideal weather conditions. The winter wet weather built up water reserves, while the warmer months brought on an early budburst. In April, the warm days alternated with cool nights, ensuring good growth development. The flowering was consistent.
It was particularly hot, dry and sunny in June and July, bringing about water stress that was beneficial to ripening the grapes as the vine stopped its growth.
The restorative rains at the end of July sped up maturation, which then benefitted by the cooler conditions in August and September, resulting in an optimal crop of grapes. The vineyard was in perfect shape during the harvests.

Winemaking and ageing

The harvests, done by hand, were followed by a double selection on a vibrating table before and after destemming. Vatting over about three weeks. Ageing in French oak barrels (75% new).

Blend

Cabernet sauvignon (74%)
Merlot (23%)
Cabernet franc (3%).

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2015

Tasting

Colour
The colour is an intense red.

Nose
The nose exhales a beautifully fresh fragrance of fruit (black fruit, blackcurrant), spice and floral notes (violet).

Palate
A full and precise attack precedes a palate combining structure and balance. As the tasting progresses an enticing complexity is unveiled, with strong tannins still keeping a refreshing liveliness as well as a beautiful linger.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is medium garnet-purple colored with a nose of red and black currants, cedar chest and roses with a touch of dusty earth. The medium-bodied mouth is chewy, with lively fruit and good balance.
