(...) C'est un Pauillac classique, au beau potentiel de garde, qui arbore un rubis-grenat sombre et libère un bouquet intense de cassis, de fruit, de cèdre et de chêne vanillé. Il est riche et d'une belle corpulence, avec des tannins qui se fondent bien dans l'ensemble. Source : Robert Parker (4/91)
Grand-Puy Lacoste's vineyard is planted on gravelly soil and has the particularity of not having any Cabernet Franc. The resulting wines have a great capacity to age. Richly-coloured, tannic, vigorous and full-bodied, they are considered to be a perfect example of classic Pauillac. In good vintages they can rival the Médoc's finest wines.
Located on the Bages plateau in Pauillac, this château results of the division of the immense domain Grand-Puy Lacoste in the 18th century into Château Lynch-Bages and Château Grand Puy Ducasse. Classified fifth growth in 1855, François-Xavier Borie managed to raise Grand-Puy Lacoste among the best of the appellation. The second wine of the property is called Lacoste-Borie.
